The Hancock City Hall, which last year underwent both external and internal restoration work and updating, has in its tower a clock and bell system installed back in the 19th century. The bell system is an old church type bell mounted in the open space just below the clock, which is located at the top of the tower. It is rung by the clock at preset intervals by means of raising and dropping a 4# hammer, seen here.
Another view from a different perspective. A close up of the 4-way gear box. The brass I.D. plate gives the manufacturers information. One of the individual clock faces from inside the room. Note the faces appear backward here. Cleaning and restoration was done by Ron Studer.
During WW II, an air raid siren warning system was mounted here.
