Chimes with baton keyboard

At least 24 North American chimes are known to have baton keyboards (typically found with carillons) rather than the more common chimestands.  They are listed here in order by city name.  Also shown are the year completed, the current number of bells, and the makers; keyboard makers are shown when the chime was not originally equipped with a baton keyboard and has not been expanded.

NOTE:   This index is almost certainly incomplete, because there are many North American chimes for which the playing mechanism has not been reported.
