A group of Willard residents and businesses are trying to Save the Willard City Clock Tower through a special fundraiser.

The clock tower was built in 1913 atop the Chicago Junction City Hall. In 1997 the clock tower was removed and placed in storage. In 2013, the building was razed.

A fundraising drive has been started to rebuild the historical structure. The Clock Tower will be located on the old City Hall lot downtown and stand about 45 feet tall.

Former Willard resident Rick Reed and Willard Economic Development President Don Graham are spearheading the project.

Graham said over the years the tower components have suffered siginificant damage from weather and elements. The goal is to use some of the remaining materials to recreate the Clock Tower. Graham said the tower is important to the community.

"We looked at what we could do to improve the quality of life in our community. We have a brand new hospital and we're building new schools," Graham said.

"We need to do what is necessary to bring people to our community. We want them to realize the fun things we have in our community and the Clock Tower is important," Graham said.

Graham said the goal is to raise $100,000 for the project and begin construction this year. He said the new Clock Tower would be dedicated next spring.

If you would like to make a donation make checks payable to: Clock Restoration Fund, P.O. Box 367, Willard, Ohio 44890. You can also visit https://www.facebook.com/savewillardsclock.clock?  to learn more about the Clock Tower.
