One of Paul Revere's Bells Moves to Boston

One of the 23 surviving bells cast by Paul Revere has been moved to a new home at Boston's Old South Meeting House.

Since 1849, the 865-pound bell has called congregants to worship at Westborough First Baptist Church, west of Boston. But the church closed in 2007 and was sold to the museum for an undisclosed sum.

The bell was cast in 1801 and has the words "Revere & Sons" stamped on the side. It was moved Thursday, and Westborough residents had mixed emotions about it.

The town tried to raise money to buy it, but fell short. The chairwoman of the Westborough Historical Commission says she's sad to see the bell leaving town but says at least it's not going far.
