Hands of time to start moving (correctly) again in downtown Norwich

NORWICH – The historic clock that hangs over the corner of South Broad and East Main Streets in downtown Norwich has been malfunctioning for years, but thanks to the recent collaborative efforts of the Chenango Historical Society, the Greater Norwich Foundation and volunteers, the timepiece will be working again in the coming weeks.



Earlier this month, the Historical Society was granted funds by the Greater Norwich Foundation to offset the costs of repair, estimated to be $10,000 for parts and labor. The clock, which once graced the top of the five-story Chapman and Turner building on the corner of Broad and Main Streets where Gordon Park is now located, has been preserved by the Chenango County Historical Society and volunteer members of the community since its removal prior to demolition of the building in 1966.
