Florida Liberty Bell



The Florida Liberty Bell is located on the east side of the Capitol complex in front of the House Office Building in downtown Tallahassee. This is a Liberty Bell replica and there are 54 more replicas in state capitols and a few other places. You can find out more about these replicas here.

I didn't know about all the replica bells. I like how you framed this photo.

I didn't even know the bell was there! I learned something new today, thanks Lois!

The Connecticut replica is in the main hall of the Connecticut State Capitol.

Interesting that they were made in France. The information said that the bells can be rung. I do not see a crack on the bell in your photo. I guess that it would be impossible to make a new casting that replicates the crack.

Interesting! I didn't know we had one here in Florida.

So, where's the crack. I wish someone would ring it loudly in the ears of the ding-a-lings making our laws - might wake 'em up!
