Memorial Chime Tower

Built by members of the St. Olaf community over the summer of 2003, this Scandinavian-style wooden tower commemorates the lives of students who have died while enrolled at St. Olaf. The chimes, tuned to the key of D (the key of "Beautiful Savior"), are engraved with the names of those students. On windy days, the sound of the chimes can be heard almost everywhere on campus.

Listen to the sound of the chimes with the player below; a Quicktime VR virtual tour is available at the bottom of the page. (Click and hold on the image, then drag your mouse to scroll the virtual tour.)
