The Liberty Bell Museum (also called the Liberty Bell Shrine Museum) located in Zion's United Church of Christ (formerly Zion's Reformed Church) has had many uses including a refuge during Native American raids, a revolutionary war hospital, and a gathering place for the reading of the Declaration of Independence. This non-profit museum is based in the church which hid the Liberty Bell during the American Revolutionary War. The museum exhibits relate to the Liberty Bell and subjects including liberty, freedom, patriotism, and local history. The shrine was founded in 1962 by Dr. Morgan D. Person. Between 1962 and 1971, Interstate 178 planned to go through the museum's location, but the opposition canceled the expressway. Here you'll see a clear, ringing, replica copy of the Liberty Bell! Since 2003, the Liberty Bell has been housed in a facility in front of Independence Hall known as The Liberty Bell Center, where visitors may see it.
