Tower in Antlers Park has steam-locomotive bells

QUESTION: In the middle of Antlers Park, behind the pavilion, there is a tall pole with bells on it. The bells look like they can be rung by devices inside them.
What is this, and do the bells ever ring?
- Ken Smith
ANSWER: They are steam locomotive bells collected by the patriarch of the Supperstein Steel family. The “Supperstein Bell Tower,” created by sculptor Don Green was donated to the city by the family, and although there was an electronic device installed to ring the bells, it apparently has never worked as hoped.
