Bell Tower offers bird’s eye view all summer for one price

Bell TowerThere is probably no better vantage point to watch progress on construction projects around Jefferson and of the crops that spread in every direction than from the top of the Mahanay Memorial Carillon Tower.

The Bell Tower officially opened its 2015 season last Saturday. Season passes, priced at just $15 each, will make it easy for area residents to make frequent trips to the top of the tower to get a bird’s eye view of what’s happening a mile away at the corner of Highways 4 and 30, or stretching on to the horizon.

Also, persons 18 years and younger can ride the elevator to the top of the Bell Tower at no charge thanks to sponsorship by the Jefferson Telephone Company Charitable Trust.
