The Bells of Casimir ring with century old cast bronze bells and a modern carillon system filling the Cambria City Historic District with song, while tolling the passing of time.
From celebrations and events to festivals and every day moments, the Bells of Casimir have become a beloved piece of the fabric that makes the Historic District special and unique.
Every day at Noon and at 6 o’clock in the evening, the bells will toll the hour, ring a 3 Bell Peal and then play 3 songs reflecting the season, a special holiday, event or celebration.
At various times throughout the year, special ringings in honor and memory of those listed on the Perpetual Memorial page at the Casimir Cultural Center’s online home and on the plaque located in the Archangel Michael Tower of The Cultural Center.
