Our Coquina Clock Tower

Our beautiful old Clock Tower has for the past 74 years kept a steady vigil over the central Daytona Beach coastline. Constructed as part of a WPA-funded beachside renovation project, the tower – like its  companion bandshell to the north – is made of coquina rock from the Florida Keys.  It was dedicated on July 4, 1938 and rededicated in 1989 with new clockworks and a new name: the Sir Malcolm Campbell Clock Tower.  Sir Malcolm, you may recall, was the English auto racer/journalist who set several land speed records on the sands of Daytona Beach in the twenties and thirties.
