Anchorage Memorial Cemetery Bell Tower

The Anchorage Memorial Park Cemetery Advisory Board and Fairview Community Council have dreamed of bringing the gift of music to the Anchorage Memorial Park Cemetery for over a decade. In 2005, the groups came together to develop an improvement plan to install a new electronic carillon bell tower and seating area.

With your support, we will install the bell tower which will serve the cemetery visitors and neighboring community with beautiful music and enhance the spirit of the cemetery as its new, iconic landmark. Schulmerich Bells hosts an expansive digital library of songs for every occasion, ranging from patriotic and seasonal tunes to liturgical bells, chimes, and taps, providing bountiful opportunities for ceremonies and celebrations. Flanked by flagpoles and a new seating area, the bell tower will be a shining symbol of remembrance and joy, as well as a peaceful setting for paying respects.

Bell Tower $71,000
Equipment $87,070

Walls $75,750
