Withrow Tower Clock Repair

Not long after restoring the lighting in the Clock Tower it became apparent that the four clock facings were losing time at different rates. Since they are operated by one master controller installed in 2007, it was determined that the four individual clock motors driving the clock hands were severely affected by the high heat and condensation levels at the top of the Tower. For the previous almost ninety years, the clocks were operated by a set of massive gears with thick German milk glass clock faces which had made them impervious to these conditions. To address the issues, a non-mechanical thermodynamic ventilation system similar to home attic ventilation systems has been installed utilizing inconspicuous louvered vents. This summer the Verdin Company will replace the clock motors involving the use of a 125′ boom lift. Total cost of this replacement work is $10,000. By the start of 99th school year, Withrow’s Clock Tower will accurately shine again. YOUR support of any amount is greatly appreciated.
