A brief history of the memorial and monument located within the Capitol Grounds to go alongside my stock photos

 

 

  • The Robert A. Taft Memorial & Carillon is a carillon dedicated as a memorial to the former Ohio senator, Robert A. Taft.

 

  • The memorial was designed by Douglas W. Orr and consists of a white bell tower (The Carillon) made from Tennessee marble standing at 100-feet tall with a 10-foot bronze statue of Taft at the base of the tower sculpted by Wheeler Williams.

 

  • Above the statue of Robert Alphonso Taft inscribed on the bell tower reads;

 

  • This memorial to Robert A. Taft, presented by the people to the Congress of the United States, stands as a tribute to honesty, indomitable courage and high principles of free government symbolized by his life".
