Long Description:
The replica in front of the Hamilton Municipal Building on High Street was unveiled July 4, 1976, as part of the city's American Revolution bicentennial observance. It was produced by the same English bell foundry which cast the original bell in the 1750's.

In 1976, the Whitechapel Bell Foundry Ltd. of London sold 100 Liberty Bell replicas in the United States. A Hamilton commission, headed by Jim Grimm, raised more than $12,000 to obtain one of two Ohio bells for the city.
