Buford Tower, Austin, TX (12-14-2018)

The Buford Tower contains the Kitchens Memorial Chimes. The plaque on the building reads “In memory of Captain James L. Buford, Who gave his life in the line of duty in service to the citizens of Austin. No greater love.” Captain Buford was the first Austin firefighter to die int he line of duty. The structure has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places since 2016.

I was fortunate to catch the electronic chimes at 5:00 and they’re quite lovely.

[Review 10170 overall, 1756 of 2018.]
