 The History and Efforts to Preserve Daytona Beach’s
Unique Coquina Clock Tower

Read the article researched and written by NAWCC Chapter 154’s President, Randy Jaye, documenting the history of this symbolic structure, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It includes the various efforts to service and maintain both the structure and its clockworks. It also documents the recently completed Rehabilitation Project (which the city of Daytona Beach not only contributed a significant amount of money, but did a stellar job managing the project to a successful, ahead of schedule, completion.)
