of the
American Revolution:
125th Anniversary
of the
Liberty Bell Chapter

Headquartered in Allentown, the Liberty Bell Chapter of D.A.R. took their name because of the significance of the Liberty Bell being hidden in Allentown. Take a look back at all the chapter has accomplished in 125 years. Photographs and personal mementos will be on display, as well at their original charter from 1892.

Through the Camera’s Eye

Take a look back at Allentown through photographs from the mid-1800s through the mid-1900s. It has been almost 180 years since the invention of photography and many memorable images have been recorded. Each day many more images are added to this visual memory bank. These pictures will forever serve to remind us of how things were, what we looked like, and the way we lived. This exhibit allow the viewer to be reminded of the days when life seemed so much simpler: when city streets were still of dirt, when products were delivered by horse and wagon, when Hamilton Street was the place to shop, and when much of our city was yet to be built.
