Top Attractions in Philadelphia
The Liberty Bell is an iconic symbol of American independence. Once placed in the steeple of the Pennsylvania State House (now renamed Independence Hall), today the bell is in the Liberty Bell Center in Independence National Historical Park.
The bell was commissioned in 1752 by the Pennsylvania Provincial Assembly from the London firm of Lester and Pack. Externally on its upper part, you can see the lettering in two lines “Proclaim LIBERTY Throughout all the Land unto all the Inhabitants Thereof”, a Biblical reference from the Book of Leviticus (25:10). In its early years, when means of communication were limited, the bell was used to summon lawmakers to legislative sessions and to alert citizens about public meetings and proclamations.
