Durfee High School carillon & bell tower

February 2022

Are those bells I’m hearing?  Check out this fully functional and operational carillon and bell tower at the newly constructed Durfee High School in Fall River, MA!  The bell tower integrates the historic Durfee bells.  The Durfee High School carillon, which is a set of 23 chromatically tuned bells that are played using a clavier (a stringed keyboard located below the belfry), will be the only manually-played carillon at a public high school in North America!
