Smith College Carillon

Since the original installation of 12 bells in 1919, the carillon has undergone a number of renovations over the last hundred hears. Starting in August 1952, the 12 original bells were re-cast in France, and 3 more bells were added for a total of 15 bells. Further donations to the collection in 1957 allowed for the collection to reach 23 bells, allowing the Dorothea Carlile Chime to become the Dorothea Carillon. The carillon was finally completed in May 2009 by Coastal Clock and Chime with the addition of the D sharp bell that was omitted from the 70’s expansion to 48 bells.
