The first thing that popped into my head was The Liberty Bell in Philadelphia. It rang on July 8, 1776 calling all citizens to hear the first reading of the Declaration of Independence. The bell stands for the rights and freedoms for people around the country. The Liberty Bell also stands as a symbol for then end of slavery. On the bell is a crack which declared the bell unringable because it set it out of tune. My other idea was The Columbus Zoo. Growing up, my favorite place to go was The Columbus Zoo. Every year, the zoo has thousands and thousands of visitors. The zoo first opened in 1927 with the help of a small donation of animals. Colo, the first captive-born gorilla was born at The Columbus Zoo. The zoo recently celebrated their 80th anniversary in 2007. Since the zoo first opened it has evolved into the Americas largest and nicest zoo!
