Managed By: Icon Here Town Clocks
Description:
The manufacture of clocks became a thriving industry in the 14th and 15th centuries. Every town soon had to have its own. Although the basic mechanism did not change during this period, the development of better ways to cut gears and to make other metal parts was an important precursor of the Industrial Revolution. Today you can still find many of these giant clocks in town centers and other important meeting spots. Find and mark a "Town Clock" that still exists in your area.
Expanded Description:
Most town clocks are mounted on buildings but in some cases are freestanding.

Find a public clock, either mounted in/on a building or freestanding.

*UPDATE 9/7/17* This category will now require at least one sentence in the long description that describes the building or structure that a clock is mounted on (such as its history, current use, etc.). Any additional information describing the building or structure is greatly appreciated. Failure to add a minimum of one sentence describing the building or structure a clock is mounted on will result in your Waymark submission being denied.
