Potter County Courthouse Bell Ringing Again!

Potter County Today

A historic bell that hangs in the tower of the Potter County Courthouse sounded 11 times on Thursday, highlighting an observance welcoming its restoration. 

Coudersport Mayor Brenda Whitman conducted the brief ceremony at the courthouse square gazebo at 11 am Thursday. The Potter County Commissioners earlier this year approved a $7,600 contract with Verdin Company to install automatic ringing equipment on the bell. It has been programmed to chime on the hour and can also sound for special occasions. 

Funds for the work were raised by Mayor Whitman, who has been assisted by machinist Bill Daly and Joe Kurtz, the county’s supervisor of building and grounds maintenance. Precautions have been to assure that the new equipment will not damage the bell or its housing in the clock tower. 

The bell was donated to Potter County by Timothy Ives. One of Coudersport’s earliest inhabitants, Ives built a general merchandise store, was elected county treasurer and later served as judge. 

The bell has been programmed to ring on the hour from 7 am to 10 pm. (Bell photo by Curt Weinhold)
