Clock Tower

Courthouse Square

Santa Rosa, California
 

This beautiful Neo-Classical clock tower graces the top of the Empire Building, built in 1906, in what is now Courthouse Square, in downtown Santa Rosa, California. Original plans for the building did not include a clock tower, but it was added due to strong community pressure. The dome's gilding and the Empire name were added in the late 1950's, and it housed the Empire College Schools of Law and Business from 1961 to 1980. The moon adds a nice compositional element.
