Town Clock Plaza

July 4, 2007

The Town Clock Plaza is located on Main Street. Centered around the Town Clock, the Town Clock Plaza is a popular site for concerts and other events. This Town Clock is the second one (the first one was erected in 1864 and was destroyed on May 25, 1872 when the building it was on collapsed from the weight of it, killing three people). The present Town Clock was erected on April 17, 1873 on top of the building at 825 Main Street. It was removed from this building and placed on the tower at its present location, where it was dedicated on August 13, 1971.
