Vince Kidd and his son, Anthony, last week carefully removed the stained glass clock face from each side of the old Madison Bank and Trust Company clock on Main Street. The face panels in each section of the clock had fallen inward or outward over time, preventing the clock’s hands from functioning properly, according to Kidd, who also said the clock hasn’t worked for years, though he was uncertain how long. The electrician and handyman also replaced the old motors and wiring inside over a six-week period of work.

Vince Kidd’s repairs did not take long and included the cleaning of the stained glass clock faces and the clock, the removal of old motors and wiring, and replacement and custom installment of new motors and wiring. F.C. Tucker and Scott Lynch Group owns the clock, which according to the Jefferson County Historical Society, was installed between the 1920s and ‘30s. Others believe the year was 1954. The new system within the clock will now automatically keep the clock on time and will auto-correct after power outages.
