About the Henningson Memorial Campanile
The Henningson Memorial Campanile is a visible part of the Omaha skyline and the University of Nebraska at Omaha campus. The 16-story tower stands at 168 feet and contains 47 bronze bells, weighing a combined 2.5 tons. UNO broke ground for the tower’s foundation in May of 1988, and it was completed in 1989 thanks to a donation from Margre Henningson-Durham, who with her husband Charles W. Durham were significant donors for the Durham Science Center. The campanile’s construction is in memory of Margre’s parents, Henning and Rose Henningson, and sister, Helen Henningson-Grimes.
