Mechanical Engineering Keney Clock Tower Senior Design Project, Fox 61


The 130-foot-tall Keney Memorial Clock Tower sat silent and immobile for a number of years, the hands on its four clock faces no longer turning and its bells no longer sounding the hours from the small park at the intersection of Albany Avenue and Main Street, just north of downtown Hartford.

The historic tower’s original chimes are now ringing again, though, through a partnership with the City of Hartford, the nonprofit Friends of Keney Park and Keney Park Sustainability Project, the UConn Office of Service Learning Initiatives, and the UConn School of Engineering’s Mechanical Engineering Senior Design program.
