About Carillon Park: Carillon Historical Park owes its existence to the generosity of Colonel Edward Andrew Deeds (1874–1960) and Edith Walton Deeds (1869–1947). In the 1930s, while traveling in Bruges, Belgium, Edith, an accomplished musician, found inspiration in magnificent carillon music, and she dreamed of sharing this music with the people of Dayton. Edith’s dream became reality through the construction of Deeds Carillon—her most visible legacy to the community she loved.
About Carillon Brewing Company: Carillon Brewing Co. offers visitors a glimpse into 1850s-era Dayton through the authentically prepared food and drink of the times. It is the nation’s only production brewery in a museum, and the only U.S. brewery replicating the historic brewing process.
About Calvary Cemetery: Overlooking the Miami River, Carillon Park and the beautiful skyline of Dayton Ohio, Calvary Cemetery is noted as being one of the most beautiful and peaceful sites in Ohio’s Miami Valley.
