McGaffin Heritage Suites
Honoring the heritage of Rev. Alexander McGaffin. The tower and carillon were named in his memory. He was the minister who shepherded the congregation through a merger with another congregation and the construction of this building in 1909-1911. It was always his hope that the the tower would have bells and in 1968 that hope was realized with the installation and dedication of The Alexander McGaffin Memorial Carillon.
