This tower overlooks Wellesley College and has become an icon of the school. There is an instrument called a carillon located in the highest part of the tower and if you're lucky you might catch a student concert.

Galen Stone Tower rises high above Green Hall on the Wellesley College campus. The tower holds the college's carillon, a bell instrument that is played regularly by a student group and can be heard miles away. Access to the highest reaches of the tower is usually limited to public carillon events, but if you do fobs the opportunity to visit you will enjoy the most spectacular views of the campus and Lake Waban.
