During 1900 a Seth Thomas Tower Clock was intalled at the 1875 Ventura Courthouse on Santa Clara St. The clock was salvaged when the Courthouse was demolished and was installed in clock tower at the May Henning School. The clock was salvaged again and moved to the new office for schools.
Questions. I would like photos of May Henning School showing clock. When was the May Henning School Demolished? Where is the location of the "New Office of Schools"? Was the clock ever installed at the "New Office.
