Liberty Bell Center

Inspired by the scripture quote engraved on its surface—“Proclaim Liberty throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof”—the Liberty Bell served as a symbol to abolitionists who advocated for the emancipation of enslaved Africans. Visitors gravitate to the Liberty Bell Center to admire the history of the iconic bell, its famous crack and how its serves as an international symbol of freedom.
