Long Description:
The tower is made of red brick and is on the corner of West Main Street and North Union Street at the center of Whitesboro. This working clock has roman numerals on its face.

In the late 1800's, Whitesboro was known as “The City of the Divide” because the watershed characteristics. Rain that falls on the north side of Main Street drains into the Red River; that which falls on the south side of Main Street drains into the Trinity River. The area was also nicknamed the “Wolf Path” because of a grove of trees and the sandy loam that favored rich grass production that attracted the buffalo, which in turn attracted the wolves. Native Americans were known to hunt in the area because of the plentiful buffalo herds and the grove of mesquite trees from which they could hide and ambush their prey.

Enjoy a stroll through town checking out the various shops and keep an eye on the time.
