Did you know that the Montgomery County Courthouse used to sport a clock tower? Nearly three quarters of a century later, it may feature one again.

The courthouse clock tower project has been collecting money from various sources, including individual donations, the Montgomery County Historical Society, the City of Crawfordsville and appropriated funds from the county. Since the money for the project comes from so many places, a special fund for the project needed to be established. Monday morning, the Montgomery County Commissioners started that process.

“As you know, the proposed project funding comes from various sources, including government and non-governmental sources including also funding commitment from the City of Crawfordsville,” attorney Dan Taylor said. “What this would do is this would create the Montgomery County Courthouse Clock Tower Project Fund.”

Taylor explained that the main purpose of the fund is to show where the money from each source would go for the project. “It’s a little unusual to have money from so many different sources,” he said.
