Grady County Courthouse Bell

By  | 

It's been nearly 20 years since a fire ripped through the Grady County Courthouse, destroying nearly everything except for a 2,300 pound bell.

That 100-year-old bell is now back on the courthouse lawn permanently.

Residents are raising $80,000 to buy the bell tower. Even though it was damaged in the fire, the bell is now wired so chimes will sound on the hour.
