As the bell tower was being built in 1751, civic authorities wanted a better bell of quality, so it could be heard from a further distance as the city of Philadelphia grew.

Jeff, With Brian Buffini coming to Philadelphia, on the 26th and 27th, your blog title caught me eye:)  I have attended his event in Philadelphia, in the past, but, this year, just not sure if I will make it.  I love the movies, like Rocky and National Treasure, that were written to include the history of the Liberty Bell.  Entertainment, with a bit of education included:)

FRANCES... I am not familiar with Brian Buffini, so I had to google his name. Yes, I very much loved the National Treasure movies... they really got my interest... and as you stated, both entertainment with history/education. Hence another reason why I am going to love my new project, my Philadelphia web site. This should be fun, just hoping profitable. thanks

Since I've lived in South Jersey my entire life, I have seen the bell more times than I can count.  I think until I read this post I just took it for granted.  I remember we were even allowed to touch it when I was a kid.  I suppose there are tons of folks who would just LOVE to see it, let alone run their hand along that famous crack.
