DAYTON, Ind. (WLFI)- A Lafayette Landmark now has a new permanent home in Dayton. The Hour Time Clock was moved to a lot on the Koehler Brothers Nursery and Landscaping earlier this month. The Clock was bought by Lome Koehler-Marsh earlier this year. According to Ron Koehler, Lome’s dad, his son plans on putting the 9-ton clock on a European tower four to six stories high.

The clock will tell time and feature animated wooden figures that will move on the half-hour and hour. Koehler says he is happy that the clock will be enjoyed for years to come.

"There is a lot of excited people who are glad to see something done with it,” said Ron Koehler the Owner of Koehler Brothers Nursery and Landscaping. “A lot of these things are taken off of buildings and are destroyed over time and end having nothing done with them."
The roof of the clock had to be taken off for transport but is currently being put back together. Koehler says his son's plans for the clock will take several years, but that the clock could be done as early as 2021.
