Cast in 1871 by the Boston foundry of William Blake & Co., this 1,200 lb. bronze bell hung in the original Old Main until 1929, regulating the ebb and flow of campus life. Placed in the rebuilt Old Main in 1930, it fell silent with the installation of the chimes. Its restoration and this plaza were made possible with a gift from the Class of 2009.
