Christ Church Episcopal was founded by General Oglethorpe and still occupies a site near where the colony began.

The bell is a manually rung 1819 Revere and Sons church bell that is still in regular use today.

Four planes crashed during September 11th killing 2,996 people and injuring 6,000 others. These people along with the firefighters, police officers, military, first responders, families and friends are remembered for a full minute by the ring of each bell.

Savannah has many ways of commemorating the attack on our nation during September 11th, and this one is a favorite of many people in Savannah.
