*Links:

The WSCTC Website says nothing about the bells.  A PDF of the second level floor layout shows where the indoor and outdoor parts of the Centennial Bell Garden are located.

A music page contains a paragraph about these bells and what they play (see David Mahler, about halfway down the page).

The Bell Garden is described briefly in a page about its designer.
