About the bell
The crack was not always there, but was noticed sometime in the early 19th century. There are several stories about how and why the crack formed, and it was recast and repaired until a second crack developed. That is when the bell was silenced.
This iconic symbol of the American spirit of freedom has been used for many purposes over the years and was even on tour throughout the country in earlier years.
Now the Liberty Bell rests, but it will always remain a symbol of liberty for everyone in our country!
