Mahanay Memorial Carillon Tower
The 14-story Mahanay Memorial Carillon Tower commands a breathtaking view of Jefferson and the countryside of five counties. Visitors can take a glass elevator ride to the 120-ft. observation deck. $2 for adults, $1 for children 5 and under. Located on the southwest corner of the Greene County Courthouse plaza in downtown Jefferson, the tower was given to the people of Jefferson and Greene County in accordance with wills of Mr. and Mrs. Floyd Mahanay. The tower is 168 feet 2 inches high and holds 14 bells that were cast at the world famous Petit & Fritzen Bell Foundry in the Netherlands. The bells chime on the hour, quarter and half-hour and music can be played from an electric keyboard. The tower has music playing daily. The tower was completed in 1966 at a cost of $350,000.00. The tower is open daily from Memorial Day to Labor Day 12 – 4 p.m. and weekends only in May and September. Other times by appointment by calling 515-386-2155.
