Courthouse Clock Chime
updated: Apr 12, 2014, 1:00 PM

By Sandy

Am I the only one who has noticed that the chime on the Courthouse Clock is off? It's a series of 4 bells for every 15 minutes, but the second bell is delayed slightly. The tempo is off.

It never was the standard Westminster chime before, as the bell that's supposed to sound at 45 minutes past the hour is what sounds at 15 minutes past the hour.

I know the chime was recently refurbished at a cost of $1,000,000.00 dollars (all from a donation). Where did that money go?
