32-Foot-High Liberty Bell

No Liberty Bell to be found. There's construction going on at the park in the area where the Bell should be.

[Jennifer Murphy, 10/13/2020]

According to a park official in Pigeon Forge, the Liberty Bell was taken down to make way for some park construction "and it all just crumbled." That sounds like a death knell for the Bell.

32-Foot-High Liberty Bell

Patriot Park is a large park in Pigeon Forge and is dedicated to veterans from Sevier County. It features flags from all 50 states, a memorial to veterans, and an actual Patriot missile on display. The biggest attraction at the park is a large replica of the Liberty Bell. It is probably 30-40 feet tall and nearly as wide. It is made of some type of mesh material, making it somewhat see-through. The bell is surrounded by a chain link fence which prevents visitors from accessing its hollow interior. The top of the bell appears to be made of individual lights, but I was too tired at the end of the day to go back and see if it indeed lights up after dark.

Patriot Park opened in 1990 during the Gulf War; the missile-under-glass -- apparently a leftover -- was donated by Raytheon. The Bell is 32 feet high and 28 feet across, made of woven aluminum. It lights up after dark during park events such as July 4th and Winterfest.
