University of Florida Campus Historic District


Century Tower 1, UF. Gainesville, FL. Century Tower was built in 1953 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the university and was dedicated to UF students killed in World Wars I and II. The interior was originally planned as a historic museum and art gallery, but it was never completed. In 1979, a cast-bells carillon was installed in the Century Tower.
It is a 157-foot-tall (48 m) carillon tower in the center of the University of Florida campus in Gainesville, Florida. In 2008 the Century Tower became a contributing property in the University of Florida Campus Historic District which was added to the National Register of Historic Places on April 20, 1989.
