One of the oldest landmarks of Rome, the clock tower was built under the direction of James Noble Jr. and his family in 1871. A clock present inside the tower is 40 inches wide and made of authentic bronze. Now a museum, the historical owner displays artworks of a local artist named Chuck Smultz. 107 steps which spiral around the tower to the top are a unique feature of the tower. The tower is nestled on one of the seven hills of Rome called the Clock Tower Hill or Neely Hill.
Clock Tower Reviews & Ratings
Beautiful tower that was water-tower, then converted to clocktower after the Civil War. It is on top of a hill with beautiful views of Rome, GA and its surroundings. It is now a museum that is open for very limited times. It is open only first Saturday May-October between 12-1:30 pm. I got their at time of their closing. Managed to take picture inside before they closed, but could not go up the 107 steps or so to the top where I assume views are even much better than from the base.
One of the most beautiful places to visit near Broad Street. The garden around it is incredible and the maintenance of this spot is top notch.
Beautiful spot for a quick visot while in Rome. The tower is beautiful. The surrounding gardens are quaint and peaceful. The distant view is nice too. The surrounding neighborhood is so beautiful and historical. We really enjoyed stopping in.
It's a beautiful piece of history here in Rome, GS.
Amazing views from the hilltop. Great romantic spot. I wish the clocktower could be scaled, though.
