Clock Restoration Project
"I have lived in the East for nearly thirty years now, but many of my books prove that I am never very far away from Ohio in my thoughts, and that the clocks that strike in my dreams are often the clocks of Columbus."
- James Thurber
Downtown Columbus was once home to beautiful free-standing street clocks. A few remain, but need restored to bring them back to their original grandeur.
As part of the 200Columbus celebrations, Capital Crossroads SID and Downtown Residents’ Association of Columbus (DRAC) have teamed up to restore these historic treasures.
DRAC has raised the funds needed to restore these clocks.
The restorations will take place soon. Check back here for information on the neighborhood celebration that will take place later in 2012 when the restored clocks are unveiled on the street.
