Springville Community Clock

Artist's rendering of the clock
  Believe it or not this year marks the fortieth anniversary of the tear down of the old Farmers Bank at the corner of Main and Mechanic Streets. For over fifteen years various groups including the Concord Historical Society, Chamber of Commerce and the village have been trying to restore and refresh the downtown to some of its earlier glory. M and T Bank which owned the property where the bank stood gave the park to the Historical Society and Village of Springville some years back. Over time, things like the burning of the Leland House took place and this centerpiece of the village has been void. The village has redesigned and plans to finish the park this year! One thing missing from this renewal is the old clock on the corner that chimed on the hour. Forty years ago the clock stopped, this year we want to bring it back ringing in the Christmas shopping season.
About the clock, the Seth Thomas inspired four-faced clock will stand sixteen feet (16) tall, it will have computer clock movement, will be programmed to chime the famous Westminster chime at specific times day, and has the ability to be programmed to different chimes like, Christmas music. Examples of this clock have been already erected in nearby Hamburg, Lancaster and even Franklinville! To our benefactors, the clock will continue to thank you for as long as it stands due to your name being cast into its post. Cast in iron for many generations to know that you or a loved one donated built this clock. For those helping to lay the foundation as corporate sponsors, your name will be carved into the granite foundation for eons to come.
