This framed print showcases a watercolor rendering of Rocky River's iconic Clock Tower.

A bit of history on the Clock Tower:
The first Clock Tower was built  in 1912 at the intersection of Avalon and Lake Roads. It was meant to be a gateway to the scenic Beach Cliff neighborhood. The original Clock Tower was built by George Dixon, who also designed Rocky River’s Old Town Hall. In 1930 when Rocky River became a city, the Clock Tower became city property.

In 1956, a storm with winds close to 100 miles an hour toppled the tower and damaged many homes around the area. Damage was estimated in excess of $1 million.

It was not until 30 years later that a clock tower committee was organized and the city landmark was finally reconstructed in 1987. The new Clock Tower is an exact reproduction of the original 1912 Clock Tower and it was built by the R. W. Clarke Co. The Beachcliff Garden Club maintains the beautiful grounds.
