Houston, TX

District: Historic

Here, the Louis and Annie Friedman Clock Tower, a.k.a. the Market Square Clock Tower, protects and displays a key city artifact, a clock originally commissioned more than a century ago for Houston's City Hall, then located on Market Square. Now, the clock tells time downtown paired with an antique fire bell from Houston's third City Hall.
