Refurbished Santa Barbara County Courthouse Clock, Clock Gallery Unveiled

Posted on Tuesday, June 12, 2012 12:26pm

A clock which has been literally ticking for generations on the South Coast is being rededicated, after a major makeover.

And, for the first time it’s actually controlling the bells ringing from the Santa Barbara County Courthouse every quarter of an hour.

The Courthouse Legacy Foundation, and the Ventura/Santa Barbara County chapter of the National Association of Watch, and Clock Collectors not only rebuilt the clock, but the clock gallery as well.

KCLU’s Lance Orozco reports from the courthouse, where a Tuesday morning community party helped celebrate the clock project, and other renovation work.
