Verdin’s Memorial Tower: Funded by Church Members

Verdin’s Memorial Tower

The Verdin Memorial Tower provides an affordable way for your church to enjoy the sound of real bells, while offering your congregation a unique way to their honor loved ones. The tower may be funded by one or more individuals looking to leave a lasting legacy or permanent memorial. The parishoners and congregation can provide funding for the entire bell tower, or initiate separate funding initiatives for the bell, tower and cross, and electronic carillon individually. The Memorial Tower includes a donor plaque at the base to recognize donors.

The Memorial Tower stands 20' high, comes fully assembled from the Verdin factory, and is easy to install at your location. The steel tower is topped with a 3’ gold toned cross, and comes with a 24” cast bronze bell weighing 255 lbs. The electronic carillon has bell, hymns, and musical selections that can be programmed to ring at special times in memory of loved ones, to commemorate a special date, and during religious holidays. The bell is cast at the Verdin bell foundry in Cincinnati, Ohio by skilled foundry workers.

In Their Own Words:

When people hear bells ringing, their hearts are lifted in a way that remains with them for life.”
— Lawrence Frank, Ft. Wayne, IN
