This Bell is BIG missed it being chimed by 1 day. Very well displayed for all to see. Information sheets on the bell are at the doors to the Building. This is so well done and impressive that it is worth a visit..

This exhibit/display is outdoors in a small park setting. Surrounded with screen metal enclosure, The bell is large and I can only assume that it rings too.

Good stop for a site see. Good photo opt. Had a memorial to those lost on September 11th. Close to busy intersection. If you take small children keep a close eye on them.

This is one very large bell ... neat to see if you are in Newport and wandering around checking things out. Not something to go out of your way for - a neat attraction if you are already nearby.
