USA - Indiana

This card of the campus of Purdue University features the Bell Tower.  The tower is a relatively new addition to campus, but the bells from it date back to the older original Heavelon Hall buildings.  The originally building held a bell tower as part of it and burned down and then rebuilt literally one brick higher.  After another fire, the building was rebuilt without the bell tower and the bell tower as a stand alone feature was rebuilt around the turn of the 21st Century. 

The white stone structures in the foreground that the bell tower is photographed through appear to be parts of the large fountain on the nearby Engineering Mall of the campus.
