Memorial Tower – Louisiana State University
Memorial Tower, or the Campanile as it is sometimes called, is a 175 foot clock tower in the center of Louisiana State University’s campus in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, USA. Erected in 1923 and officially dedicated in 1926, it stands as a memorial to Louisianans who died in World War I. Upon entering the tower, visitors find the rotunda of bronze plaques bearing the names of 1,447 fallen Louisiana World War I soldiers, to whom the tower is dedicated. The inside of the tower is also home to a military museum. Each quarter hour, the LSU community can hear the sound of chimes coming from the bells of the clock tower. The Westminster Chimes are used each day until 10p.m. At noon, the University’s alma mater is played.
