Manitou Town Clock

-A A +A
1890. Corner of Cañon and Manitou aves.

In the triangular plaza that marks the Y intersection of Manitou and Cañon avenues, Jerome Wheeler installed this cast iron clock to commemorate completion of the now-razed Manitou Mineral Water Bottling Company. The four-faced clock, topped by a statue of Hygeia, daughter of Aesculapius, god of medicine, was restored in 1991.
