Did You Know… this was the First National Bank, located on the northwest corner of Second Street and Willis Avenue.

You will see that the clock is missing from this photo. The clock started life on the Peoples Bank, located across the street to the east. The Peoples bank closed in the depression and the clock was moved to its current location.

It would be nice if the clock could be made to tell time again. At least it’s time is correct twice every day. Today this building is called the Town Craft building, and is now home to the Perry Chamber of Commerce.
