Opening for 2020 Season is postponed

The Mahanay Carillon Tower opens official on May 3, 2020 on the weekends only until Memorial Day when it begins with the daily schedule. At this time, the Tower is not open for tours.  Enjoy listening to the bells as they ring the Westminster Chimes each quarter hour.  The bells play two songs after each hour.

Mahanay Tower Staff

We are so pleased to introduce our Mahanay Bell Tower staff for 2019 with many returning for multiple years. These ambassadors for the community are often the first people visitors meet and feel so welcomed.

Opening Day

The Mahanay Memorial Carillon Tower will officially open for the 2018 season on Saturday, May 5 from 10 a.m. – 4 pm.  It will be open these same hours during the weekends in May or by appointment by calling 515-386-2155.

Penny Souvenir Machine

The Bell Tower Community Foundation was the grateful recipient of the first Penny Souvenir Machine.  The Greene County Community Foundation awarded this grant in time for the machine to be ordered, and it is now located in the lobby area of the Mahanay Tower.  Four designs are available -the Mahanay Memorial Carillon Tower, Thomas Jefferson Gardens, Greene County Courthouse, and the Lincoln Highway.  Cost is $.51 for each penny so collect all four!
