The Clock of Fairhope
For many years, the Emperor Clock Company had a presence in the City of Fairhope, AL. It was also one of the primary employers in the infancy of the town. Lawrence Curtis Tuck loved both the City of Fairhope, as well as the Emperor Clock Company. Lawrence Curtis Tuck passed away in 1989. Upon his death, the family and estate of Lawrence Curtis Tuck had the beautiful clock made by the Emperor Clock Company, then donated the clock to the City of Fairhope in his memory.
This clock has become an iconic symbol of the City of Fairhope. Located in the heart of downtown, on the corner of Section Street and Fairhope Avenue. Today, people often refer to the clock as a meeting point for any of the events and festivals. Also popular among painters and photographers to capture a glimpse of this utopian paradise on Mobile Bay.
The town clock is a testament to a beloved resident who wanted to do something special for his hometown when he passed away. When you come to town, I’ll meet you at the clock!
If you would like to own a piece of this paradise on Mobile Bay, I would love to help you!
