Is there something so identifiable with a city that, when you visit, you just have to see it? Such as New York and the Statue of Liberty or Philadelphia and the William Penn statue. See the clock tower in the distant skyline? That’s the Maryland Casualty clock tower. Once built, the clock tower was one of the most stunning architectural structures in the city.
The tower, originally located on the 200 block of East Baltimore, bought from Maryland Casualty by William Hearst in the mid 1920s was the permanent location of Baltimore American newspaper and Baltimore News until 1942.
