Refurbished City Market Clock Unveiled

Posted 6:23 PM by

 

Indiana Landmarks, Indianapolis City Market, and Katz, Sapper & Miller Team Up to Restore Historic Treasure

Indianapolis, Ind. – Today, leaders from Indiana Landmarks, Indianapolis City Market, and Katz, Sapper & Miller unveiled the historic street clock on the east plaza of City Market Plaza, near the corner of Market and Alabama streets.

Made in Boston by the E. Howard Clock Co. in the late nineteenth century, the clock was brought to Indianapolis around 1921 by Curtis Franklin Terry, a watchmaker and jeweler who made it a trademark for his business. Until his death in 1971, the clock stood on the sidewalk in front of his shop at 935 Indiana Avenue.

The City of Indianapolis bought the clock from the Terry family in 1972 to place at the City Market which was then undergoing the renovation that added east and west wings and plazas. Members of the Terry family joined Mayor William Hudnut when the clock was installed in memory of Mr. Terry in time for the City Market’s reopening in 1977.  

Katz, Sapper & Miller (KSM) funded the $20,000 restoration of the clock. “As Katz, Sapper & Miller celebrates our 75th year in business, we wanted to make a permanent contribution to a city that has been so good to us,” said David Resnick, managing partner of the accounting and consulting firm. “We’re thrilled to refresh the elegance and ensure the accuracy of this prominent public landmark as a lasting reminder of our firm’s commitment to our hometown,” he added.

KSM will additionally contribute $5,000 to Indiana Landmarks for a City Market Clock fund. The fund will cover annual maintenance and repairs. Indiana Landmarks also has a fund for the repair and maintenance of the Ayres Clock, subject of a restoration fundraising campaign in 2016.

Smith’s Bell and Clock Service of Camby restored the clock. The company restored the Ayres Clock last fall after a fundraising campaign mounted by Indiana Landmarks. Company President J.J. Smith said it was an honor to work on another Indiana treasure. “We sanded, primed and painted the clock case and overhauled the movement of the clock mechanism. The lexan covering the face is new, and we added a master clock controller, which will correct the clock after an outage.”

Indiana Landmarks, with its mission to save places that matter to Hoosiers, suggested the clock renovation when Katz, Sapper & Miller inquired about making a contribution to help restore a landmark in celebration of the firm’s 75th anniversary.  

“Historic public clocks perform a function—they help people stay on time—and they become the source of traditions. ‘Let’s meet under the Ayres Clock. I’ll meet you at the City Market Clock,’” said Marsh Davis, president of Indiana Landmarks. “And from a civic pride standpoint, they ought to work properly. The City Market Clock looks elegant once again, and Katz, Sapper & Miller’s gift will endure because the firm committed to a maintenance fund. What a thoughtful and generous organization!” he added.

“We have invested recently to make the East Plaza a more lively, engaging and welcoming site, especially for people working in the new Cummins building and the 360 Tower. The 14-foot-tall clock is such a prominent feature of the space that getting it restored was a major goal. We’re very grateful to Katz, Sapper & Miller for its generosity and civic-mindedness,” said Stevi Stoesz, executive director of Indianapolis City Market.
