It's interesting to note that the Netherlands donated the Carillon to the U.S. for saving their country from the Nazis. We could hear the carillon from Arlington National Cemetery.

The Carillon itself is nothing spectacular, but there is a very nice set of flowers in front, and it does chime every now and then. And if into photography, it is nicely situated up on a hill overlooking the mall.

This is a strange item in terms of its construction and its function as a bell tower. It makes interesting reading but the overall impression is a rather gloomy one
