Liberty Trust Company Bell
This bell was cast in 1922 by the McShane Bell Foundry of Baltimore, and hung in the tower of Liberty Trust Company, 830 Hamilton St. Allentown. The bank was founded in 1919, and the façade of the building was altered to evoke Independence Hall three years later. Allentown furniture manufacturer Louis J.G. Buehler purchased the tower of the building before it was demolished in the 1960s, but only the bell itself and the steam engine displayed in the Museum survived a subsequent fire in a storage building.
Louis J.G. Buehler Collection, National Canal Museum, a program of the Delaware & Lehigh National Heritage Corridor.
