American Tower Clocks, 1717 - 2013

For street clocks only, go to Street Clock Makers.

The page below is divided into three parts of approximately equal size. Part 1, covering the years 1717 to 1839, follows this heading immediately. If you wish to go to a different section, click here for Part 2, covering the years 1840 - 1871, or here for Part 3, covering the years 1875 to the present.

Clicking on the link to the right of the name will take you to another page that lists all the known installations/existing clocks by that particular maker. For ease of use, this "other page" is split into three sections, to speed up the links somewhat. If you wish, you can browse these sections by using the links below:
