The Liberty Bell Center There are many who associate the Liberty Bell as the symbol of freedom, however it started life in a foundry in London's Whitechapel and had the ignominy of cracking on its first ring. Originally used as the bell to signal the reading of the Constitution, it was later adopted as a symbol of liberty by abolitionist societies. The Liberty Bell Center presents larger-than-life historic documents and graphic images exploring the facts and the myths surrounding the Bell together with an insider's view, literally, of the Bell's crack and inner-workings via x-rays.
