1. South Hall Bell Marker
Inscription. Installed atop South Hall in 1872, this bell marked the pace of life at Adrian College for many years. Upon the demolition of South Hall in 1965, the bell was placed in the Carillon Tower which marks the location of South Hall.

We, the members of the Class of 1984, dedicate this place to the generations of Adrian College students who were called to worship, to class, and to meals by the mellow tones of the South Hall bell.
