New plans for historic "Hour Time" clock

The "Hour Time" clock will now be part of a historic village being created on the south side of Dayton

LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - The owners of the historic "Hour Time" clock have announced a change in direction for use of the clock. The owners of Snyder Entertainment Group, LLC said "it is with mixed emotions" that they announce the clock has been sold to Lorne Koehler-Marsh.

As News 18 previously reported, Mark and Monte Snyder had planned to incorporate the clock into a family fun and entertainment park. A press release about the announcement said Koehler-Marsh and his father, Ron, plan to move the clock to the historic village they are creating on the south side of Dayton. That is also home to Koehler Brothers Nursery and Landscaping.

The Snyder's first bought the clock at an auction in 2016. The press release said that Koehler-Marsh, an antique clock aficionado, approached the group to purchase the clock, since it hadn’t moved for some time.

It said the funding for the Fun Park has been slow in coming, so the Snyder’s accepted Koehler-Marsh’s offer and have since modified they’re plans to bring a wholesome family entertainment venue to the Lafayette area.

“We’re pleased the clock will be featured in a setting worthy of its heritage," said Mark Snyder in the press release.  It said an announcement with they’re new strategy will be coming soon.

”What we have in the works should be even more exciting than our original plan,” Snyder said. “We believe Lafayette really needs a place where families and friends can come together in a comfortable setting, enjoy a meal and experience wholesome entertainment. That’s what we’re committed to creating."
