Ralph E. Salzgaber (1920-1993), a lifelong resident of Grandview Heights, led a drive to purchase a replica of the Liberty Bell for the community. Salzgaber served several terms as a city councilman and one term as treasurer of the city of Grandview Heights. He was a veteran of World War II service with the Army Finance Corps in North Africa, and was a retired lieutenant colonel in the U.S. Army Reserves. The recipient of six Freedom Foundation Awards from the Freedoms Foundation of Valley Forge, he presented patriotism programs in area schools. Perhaps Ralph's greatest contribution to Grandview Heights and the local community was his volunteer work as the chairman of the Bicentennial Committee in 1975-76. Through his efforts, Grandview Heights was designated as a Bicentennial Community by the American Revolution Bicentennial Administration. During the Bicentennial commemoration, important historical documents were collected and the history of Grandview Heights was updated. The full size replica of the Liberty Bell was purchased as a lasting memorial monument commemorating Grandview's participation in the Bicentennial Program. it can be found in the lobby of the Marble Cliff City Hall.
