  Historic Paul Revere Bell
Relocated to Old South Meeting House

June 2011: McGinley Kalsow & Associates assisted Old South Meeting House with the careful relocation of the Revere Bell. The bell was moved from Westborough First Baptist Church. The historic 876-pound bell was cast in 1801 and is one of only 23 surviving bells cast by Paul Revere. It is the oldest of three Revere bells now on the "Freedom Trail".

The Old South Meeting House, a National Historic Landmark, served as the meeting place for colonists to gather to challenge British rule in the years leading to the American Revolution. It has not had a bell in its tower since 1876. The bell is now on public display in the Old South Meeting House Museum and will be placed in the clock tower in September. With the integration of the bell with the historic clock tower, Old South Meeting House will again announce the time to downtown Boston.
