Gateway Bell Tower

Under the city’s gateway program and with assistance from the Verdin Company, the city of Cincinnati erected this carillon in 1996. The tower serves as a gateway or, “front door” to the city and is a monument to the long history of bell making by the Verdin Company, which started making bells and clocks in 1842.

In addition to the bell tower, there is a small landscaped park area which lays between Liberty and Thirteenth Street. Future plans include adding an amphitheater adjacent to the tower.
