The clock was originally built in 1922 (a 1959 newspaper article gave the apocraphal date of 1907, which is not true) and located at 3rd and Seneca at Young's Credit Jewelers. They moved in 1928 to 4th and Pike. This is the clock referred to in the Landmark Nomination as being dismembered in an owner's backyard.Location:
