Inscription.  Conceived by Mr. and Mrs. Clarence E. Pigford, the Jackson Memorial Carillon was erected by members of the First Presbyterian Church and citizens of Jackson and Madison County in honor of those who served their country in the two world conflicts, 1914 1918 and 1941 1945.

Following World War II, the bells were cast and tuned in France, at the Paccard Foundry. Each bell is a living, inspiring memorial to the soldiers of both World Wars and shall forever be a symbol of love and peace.

The Carillon is hereby dedicated to the soldiers who offered and gave their lives for their country. September 11 - 12, 1954

Restored and rededicated on October 4, 2009
