Bromo Seltzer Arts Tower

The Emerson Bromo-Seltzer Tower, built in 1911, was modeled after Florence's Palazzo Vecchio. The tower was built next to the Bromo-Seltzer factory. Now the tower is an art studio and showcase, with an original elevator that can take you from floor to floor and to the top where you can see and learn about the four clocks that are at the top of the tower.

It's a little noisy to hear all the ticks and movement, but that makes it even more fun. You can take the old elevator to the top, but there are a few steep stairs to the clock room.
