Bells

In 1920, this building’s 15 bronze carillon bells first played the Illinois state song, “By Thy Rivers Gently Flowing,” but have more recently played popular theme songs and holiday tunes.

Which building is it?

Answer: Altgeld Hall

The chimes are missing two notes, D sharp and F natural—the only two notes not necessary to play the Illinois fight songs.
