CRAWFORDSVILLE, Ind. (WLFI) -- Members of the Crawfordsville community welcomed a new decoration piece for the city.

The new courthouse clock tower arrived in several pieces Monday afternoon.

Members of the community stood outside the courthouse to watch the arrival.

Sandra Lofland is the the president of the Montgomery County Historical Society's Clock Tower Committee. 

After twenty-two years of trying to get a new clock, Sandra Lofland said seeing this clock arrive at the courthouse was a dream come true.

"It's just like Christmas morning to me or I just feel like if you work hard enough and long enough you can make it happen," said Lofland.

The clock tower will be assembled on top of the courthouse this week.

The clock tower, which costs over $540,000, was paid for with private donations and grants. The Montgomery County Historical Society is still accepting donations to pay off the loans.

A dedication ceremony will be held June 17 at 3 p.m.
