Ludlow Clock Tower

The Ludlow Clock Tower is a prominent architectural feature of the town of Ludlow, Massachusetts. The tower is part of the Ludlow Mills complex, and is depicted as part of the town seal.[1] The tower was constructed as part of the complex in 1886, by the Ludlow Manufacturing and Sales Company.[2]

Present use[edit]

Ludlow Mills ceased operation in the 1960s, and the building, although occupied by various tenants since, has generally fallen into a state of deterioration.[2] In late 2011, it was announced that the complex had been purchased by WestMass Area Development Corporation for $7 million. The company plans to sell some of the space to HealthSouth Rehabilitation Hospital and some buildings to WinnDevelopment for senior housing.[2][3][4]
