Long Description:
The clock was moved to a tower on top of city hall in 1889. The old city hall was demolished in 1965 and the clock sold.
In 1987 Mayor Herb Jenson began the search for the clock. It was discovered at the Gem College in Quincy Il and purchased for $1000. The tower was constructed from major contributions and pledges of $35 per person and the total cost was $80,000. This was a SD Centennial Project.
