A source of Roman pride throughout the years, the clocktower has always stood,
atop a hill, standing still,
ever bringing us closer to that special time of year.
And when it chimes it is the people that stand still in awe, for despite passing time, our clocktower has remained. –
8/25 The Rome Christmas Spirit Series.
The Clocktower, Rome, Georgia.
