Current Bell Restoration Projects

Georgetown Lutheran Bell

To commemorate the congregation’s 250th year, the National Bell Festival is partnering with Georgetown Lutheran Church to restore their historic bell on Wisconsin Ave. in Washington, D.C. The bell, cast in 1780, was removed from the tower and sold to pay off debts incurred during the Civil War. It hasn’t rung since. Explore the enigmatic history of this bell and join BellFest in setting it ringing again.
