LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) - An antique clock that was once a landmark in downtown Laramie had returned to its home.

The Laramie Boomerang reports (http://bit.ly/1MbAgXD ) that the clock historically stood in front of Midwest Trunk and Sporting Goods but was removed in the 1960s.

Mayor Dave Paulekas says the city council always supported the clock’s return but was further motivated when a passionate advocate for the project, Laramie business owner John Hester, died in 2012.

Clock owner Carolyn Hurwitz says she sees the landmark as a symbol of downtown revival. She says the clock, which served as advertisement for her grandfather’s sporting goods store, represents a time before big chains came to Laramie.
