"The Eloise Chimes"
— 1915 —This bell was part of a set of 11 chimes originally designed for a Methodist Church in Pennsylvania. Lincoln Hulley, Stetson University's second president, acquired the bells in 1915 and they were mounted in the cupola of Elizabeth Hall. When the weight and vibrations of the 11 bells, ranging from 575 to 3000 pounds, caused the walls of the cupola to crack, a 116-foot tower was built on the campus to house them in 1934. Lincoln and Eloise Hulley are buried on the first floor on the south side wall of the tower. When the top of Hulley Tower was dismantled in 2006, Bell #8 was bequeathed to the Henry A. DeLand House Museum.
