This bell was located in a memorial park. In honor and remembrance of the victims of September 11. Located in the midwestern part of the United States.
This memory bell reminds me of our Liberty Bell here in the United States.
After World War II, the city if Philadelphia allowed the National Park Service to take custody of the bell, while retaining ownership. The bell was used as a symbol of freedom during the Cold War and was a popular site for protests in the 1960s. It was moved from its longtime home in Independence Hall to a nearby glass pavilion on Independence Mall in 1976, and then to the larger Liberty Bell Center adjacent to the pavilion in 2003. The bell has been featured on coins and stamps, and its name and image have been widely used by corporations.
