(ABC 6 News) -- One of the oldest carillons in North America is undergoing a major renovation. In 1928, Rochester's Carillon started ringing atop the Plummer Building at Mayo Clinic.
The Rochester Carillon is comprised of 56 bells and is twelfth largest in the United States in the number of bells. The bells are cast in bronze and precisely tuned for harmonious effect by paring the metal surface from inside the bells.
On Friday, January 18, ABC 6 News was given a behind-the-scenes look at the Rochester Carillon restoration project.
