Join us for an architectural tour of the History Center and discover the neoclassical architectural elements that define this iconic Polk County landmark. This month, we focus on the historic clock. The clock residing in the dome of the History Center was designed by E. Howard & Co., Boston in 1908. Before being converted to electricity, the clock was wound by several striking weights that weigh up to 350 pounds. The architectural tour begins at 11 a.m. on the third Saturday of each month.
