Master Horologists Galen and Tim Gudenkauf have restored the 1914 Nogales City Hall Building's Seth Thomas Tower Clock which can be found in Historic Downtown Nogales, Arizona. It's one of the few working tower clocks left in the United States.

The rare time piece was presented to the pre-established town of Nogales in 1915 and has run most of the time since. For more than a decade, however, it sat idle. ​The father and son team, along with volunteers got it ticking again​ in January—in time for the building's centennial ceremony.

The project was funded by a Tohono O'odham Nation grant and moved forward by the City of Nogales. You can see the clock tower by visiting the Pimeria Alta Historical Society Museum ​at 136 North Grand Avenue, Nogales, AZ 85621.  Please call (520) 287-4621 for information.
