I didn't see a crack anywhere on either side. Darn. Do I have to travel to Philadelphia just to see a Liberty Bell with a crack?

Really lovely! Outside the Midway Village and Museum Center. Stop by the Sock Monkey at this same place!

[rhubygirl, 07/17/2015]

The Museum Center has a mini-museum about Sock Monkeys, which are made from red heel socks first sewn in Rockford. The Liberty Bell, however, was made in London, England, for the 1976 American Bicentennial, "one of only seven known to exist in the United States," according to its plaque.
