According to a July 1988 article in the Philadelphia Inquirer, the bell was “shielded by a shelf of reference books from visitors and standing against the rear wall of the Falvey Memorial Library at Villanova University [and] is a little sister of the nation’s most conspicuous patriotic symbol of freedom. It’s known as the Other One, the Sister Bell and the Villanova Bell. ”
Where is the bell now? The Sister Bell was moved to the Augustinian Heritage Room. She may be seen by appointment by calling Father Marty Smith: 610-864-1590. Father Smith notes that people come from all over the country to view the bell. Maybe you will too!
