The melodic sounds of the chimes housed in their Spanish-style tower have been heard throughout Avalon since 1925. William Wrigley Jr. and Ada Elizabeth Wrigley, purchased the chimes and had a beautiful tower built to house them. The Catalina Chimes Tower Foundation was established in 2013 to restore and preserve this beloved landmark for future generations to enjoy.
