Richmond's Carillon

Richmond features a beautiful 240 foot carillon in Dogwood Dell near Byrd Park. This is a through and through shot from the right hand side (here is a full-size picture of the Carillon). It was built as a tribute to WWI men and servicewomen comissioned by the Virginia General Assembly between 1924-1928.

The city and arts councils sponsor concerts there for military-related holidays (Veteran's Day, Memorial Day, etc) and they do still play the carillon. They also host Arts in the Park, a 4th of July celebration and weddings.

This carillon originally had 66 bells, but only played 53 notes (the extra bells were on the higher notes, intended to increase volume), but today after a 1970's renovation it now has 53 bells and plays 53 notes.

    When I was in high school the director of our high school play worked for the city parks department and so we were able to borrow some props from the Dogwood Dell (next to the Carillon). The props were actually kept in storage at the top of the bell tower, so that was a blast to go up there and poke around.
