Liberty Bell Museum

At Christmas time they have a very cute puppet show. "Pip The Mouse" was a very popular puppet show from the now defunct Hess Department Store.

Liberty Bell Museum

This is where the Liberty Bell was hidden during the revolutionary war. It's a small exhibit, but it's interesting.

[J MacAdam, 06/06/2005]

There's a replica Liberty Bell here now (the real one is back in Philadelphia). From September 1777 to the summer of 1778 it was hidden here, under church floorboards, hay, and manure to keep it from being discovered by the British, who would have loved to melt it into cannons and ammo to kill Americans.
