Old clock returns to downtown Tyler

TYLER (KYTX)-An old courthouse clock returns to downtown Tyler.

Two of the four clock faces from the 1909 Smith County courthouse building have been installed on the new parking garage in Fair Plaza on South Broadway.

The clocks were bought from the old building in 1965.

They were then donated to the Smith County Historical Society in 1977 and have been in storage ever since.

"Tyler-ites and people that visit us can see that we care about our history as well as well as all the modern things that we've had, all the comforts we've created for our people in Tyler," Smith County Historical Society Office Manager Sam Kidd said.

The parking garage is expected to be completed soon.
