Netherlands Carillon, George Washington Memorial Parkway

—National Park Service, U.S. Department of the Interior —

With the gift of a carillon Queen Juliana of the Netherlands presented something truly Dutch to the American people. The fifty pbells are inscribed with a verse from a poem and an emblem representing each of the Dutch provinces and different aspects of Dutch society. Describing the gift, Queen Juliana of the Netherlands said,

So many voices in our troubled world are still unheard. Let that be an incentive for all of us when we hear the bells ringing.

The Dutch royal family guard the Carillon bells in the form of two bronze lions made by Dutch sculpture Paul Philip Konig. The flower beds shaped like musical notes took root with 10,,000 tulips donated by the people of the Netherlands in support of Lady Bird Johnson's beautification efforts in 1964.

Edward M. Nassor, volunteer carillon director, plays the bells with his hands on the clavier 'batons' and feet on the pedals.

In 1952, Queen Juliana of the Netherlands presented a silver bell to President Truman as a promise of the carillon.
