UF Then & Now
Century Tower

Century Tower then Century Tower now
The Century Tower was erected in 1956, after three years of construction, as a memorial to UF students killed in WWI and WWII. The picture to the left shows the tower in 1957, two years before the Carillon bells were installed. Today, the tower, pictured right, produces chimes every quarter hour and a daily concert at 12:35 p.m.
