The bell, in the key of F, was made in Bridgewater, England before 1776. This bell has been used in many ways in Bridgeton and once in Philadelphia. It called people together for important news and meetings when hanging in the Court House that was built in 1760-61. It rang for liberty when the Declaration of Independence was signed. It was used as a warning signal during the War of 1812. It rang for the 200th Anniversary of the founding of Cumberland County in 1948. It was also on exhibit in Philadelphia during the 150th Anniversary of Independence. While there, it rang for the closing time. The Cumberland County Liberty Bell may not be as well known, but has an interesting history of its own, and no crack!
