    When I moved here in 1998 the bell still had its clapper. I believe it was removed sometime during the reign of Ramona Barnes, a few weeks after union demonstrators walked through the halls of the Capitol banging pots and pans.

    If you have a legible photograph of the plaque, seen next to the bell in the image above, then I would love to get a copy. Sadly, the plaque has been removed to make room for a dog-sized sarcophagus adorned with the names of officials responsible for the recent restoration of the Capitol building.
