NOTHAMPTON, Mass. (WWLP) – A Northampton community heirloom received a make-over.

Mayor David Narkewicz re-dedicated the century-old Seth Thomas Clock. The clock has been restored, and moved to the Pulaski Park area.

Former Mayor Calvin Coolidge dedicated the clock in 1910. The clock was originally located at the corner of Main Street and Strong Avenue.

Antique clock specialist Peter Nunes told 22News, what the clock means to Northampton.

“It’s very nice that it finally came back to the city of Northampton. They did find some money to get it restored properly, which is very good. It didn’t just languish in a warehouse somewhere,” said Nunes.

The clock was privately owned, and stood for 86 years until 1996, when the owner removed the clock and placed it in storage.

The city recently purchased the clock back and had it restored.
