Long Description:
The handsome town clock that used to decorate the First National Bank of Cisco was been taken down, refurbished, and put on display outside the Conrad Hilton Center in downtown Cisco Texas.

A plaque on the clock reads as follows:

"OLD BANK CLOCK

A gift from the former
FIRST NATIONAL BANK OF CISCO

Presented to the
CONRAD HILTON CENTER
On the occasion of its
20th Anniversary
July 7, 2006

SPECIAL THANKS TO
ESTATE OF HELEN CRAWFORD
For funding of refurbishment
and addition of chimes system

DIXON SEIDER
For years of dedicated service
In maintaining the clock"

This gorgeous clock looks it had been formerly mounted on the corner of the bank building. based on its linear Frank-Lloyd-Wright-ish Prairie-style design, Blasterz guess the original clock dates from the 1910s-1920s.

It is rectangular, with copper accents on the front of the clock faces and on the housing. A stained-glass Tiffany-style panel above each clock face reads "First National Bank." Below the stained glass panel, a square white panel with copper accents at the corners holds the clock face. The clock face is white with stylized black Arabic numerals and black decorative hands. The face is divided into 4 3 hour sections. Minutes are denoted by dots, with larger dots denoting 5 minute increments and hours.
