Columbia Town Clock – Columbia, South Carolina
South Carolina | SC Picture Project | Richland County Photos | Columbia Town Clock
This clock, located on the corner of Main and Hampton Streets in downtown Columbia, is just one of two identical town clocks in our state capital. The famous Sylvan Brothers had this clock installed in front of their historic jewelry store in 1905.
The other clock is located on the corner of Main and Washington Streets. If you happen to have a picture of it, please send it to us!
Frederick says that he’s actually seen the clocks opened and manually wound! “It was neat to see all the gears and the old fashioned equipment inside of a clock that size” he says.
