   Here is the Four Sided Clock in the City of Venice FL     The city of Venice FL celebrated it’s 85th Anniversary in 2012.  About 40 or 50 years ago Venice was not a nice looking town.  Between 1990s and early 2000s, the City Council agreed to improve the look and beautify the City of Venice to attract tourists and home buyers from other areas to town. They spent money to install brick sidewalks and antique-looking street lamps along the Downtown Street.  The four sided clock in the City of Venice on the 200 block of West Venice at the Centennial Park was added for the decorative value.   Tick Tock Tick Tock … the 4 Sided Clock in the City of Venice FL   This information is provided by Kwee Huset Realty.
