Ashland in Ashland County, Ohio — The American Midwest (Great Lakes)
Ashland County Courthouse Bell
This bell was hung in the old court house in 1853 and for 75 years served Ashland County truly & well. It's vibrant tones rang out the news of Lee's surrender, tolled the passing of the immortal Lincoln, pealed forth the victory of Admiral Dewey, and joined in the glad refrain proclaiming the end of the World War. May its faithful voice, now hushed in silence, echo in our hearts forever.
Erected by Ashland County.
