Place: St Francis de Sales in Cincinnati, Oh

Besides the friendly atmosphere and hospitality of all its parishioners, St. Francis De Sales is known for having the largest free swinging bell ever poured in the U.S. A.  When it was built and dedicated in 1895, it weighed 35,000 pounds with dimensions of 7 feet tall and 9 feet at the base.  The story and now the myth, is that it broke windows the first time it was rung, and since then, It can only be rung with a hammer from the outside of the bell. – from http://www.desalescrossings.org/DeSales%20Church.html
