Inscription.

"Meet Me Under The Clock"

Installed in 1937 and gifted by the
Classes of 1937, '38 & '39
the "Kirk Street Clock" has become
the symbol of fond memories and great friendships
for generations of LHS students. The clock
now runs on a GPS system and chimes on the
quarter hour. On the hour a verse of the
LHS song "On, Wisconsin" plays and
will surely bring you back in time!


 
Erected 2014 by LHS Classes of 1957, '60, '63, '79 and '93, Alumni, and Concerned Citizens and Organizations.
