Bring the Bell! Ring the Bell!

Help bring the Bicentennial Commemorative Bell to Jacksonville!

The City of Jacksonville and its citizens celebrated, commemorated, and elevated the 200th anniversary of its June 15, 1822 founding with a community festival and fireworks display on Saturday, June 11. It was a grand event!

But, as the saying goes, when the party’s over what will remain to remind Jacksonville of this momentous occasion?

You can be part of the bicentennial’s legacy by contributing to a gorgeous custom-made bronze bell, to be placed in a central downtown location. The bell will be installed in a granite structure that will feature a listing of those who graciously recognized the significance and importance of this permanent monument. (Note: Donations under $500 will be listed collectively as “The Citizens of Jacksonville, Florida”.) 

The bell will be finished and delivered to Jacksonville early in 2023. While funding and site planning continue for its permanent home downtown, the bell will be on display temporarily, location TBD.
