Bisno Schall Clock Gallery


Thank you for your interest in the Bisno Schall Clock Gallery! This website, mostly static, will unfold the story of one of the last remaining operational Seth Thomas Tower Clocks in America.

Over the course of two-years (2010-2012) a team of experts assembled in Santa Barbara to work on the conversion of what had become a storage room in the tower of the National Historic Landmark Santa Barbara Courthouse. Also located in this storage room is a fully functioning Seth Thomas tower clock--of which has been ticking the time and decades since its installation in the late summer of 1929.

There are three main features of this newly created Clock Gallery, they are: 1) completely restored Seth Thomas Tower Clock; 2) an interpretive mural surrounding the clock; and 3) custom electronics, ceiling display and room improvements made ready for visitors.
