[ARCHIVED] Keeping Time in Wellesley Square

Clock return.install

Wellesley Square's iconic clock is back in its usual place on Central Street. 

A replica of a historic station clock, the familiar landmark was re-installed on January 12. It was removed in September 2020.

The clock and its base got a full 'facelift' during the five-month hiatus. It was stripped down, sandblasted, painted and repaired, and the inner workings were updated.

With its brand new look, the clock resumes its job of keeping our community on time!
