The Liberty Bell, Philadelphia – Pennsylvania Travel Guide

Take a tour of Liberty Bell in Philadelphia, United States — part of the World’s Greatest Attractions travel video series by GeoBeats.

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania is the home of an American icon of freedom and democracy.

The Liberty Bell first rang out to the citizens of Philadelphia on July 8th 1776 to announce the first reading of the Declaration of Independence.

The bell has since been taken out of Independence Hall’s bell tower and now rests in the Liberty Bell Center, in front of its historic home.

Encircling its crown is a phrase derived from the Bible; specifically Leviticus chapter 25, verse 10.

The famous crack in the Liberty Bell is its third, the first two having been repaired.

Though this enormous bell is technically broken, the rights and freedoms it stands for will remain strong and intact forever in our nation.
