The new Brethen tower is at the very back of Carillon Park on the west end behind the Transportation Center.
The first building the former clock was on dates back to the late 1800s. The clock was first placed on the Callahan office building, which later became the Gem City Savings building in downtown Dayton, where the PNC building stands today at Third and Main streets.
“When this clock was set on top of it, it really set it (the building) apart from other buildings downtown,” Brady Kress, Dayton History president and chief executive, told us last year.
In 1978, the clock was moved to a Reynolds and Reynolds building in West Dayton near I-75. The city of Dayton asked Dayton History to take the clock in 2006 when that building was razed.
