1. Miami Trust and Savings Bank Clock Marker
Inscription.

The Clock hanging above this plaque was manufactured by the O. B. McClintock Co. of Minneapolis. It was brought to Miami by the Miami Trust and Savings Bank in 1917. For 59 consecutive years, it hung from the corner of the Professional Building at Central and Main. In 1976 the Clock was headed for the trash heap when it was rescued by Miami Attorney Ben T. Owens. Twenty seven years later, Richard Crump restored this faithful timekeeper, and on May 9, 2003 the Mighty McClintock once again rose up over Miami's Main Street.
