To celebrate investment in the city and the accounting firm Katz, Sapper and Miller’s 75th anniversary, a historic clock is once again ticking at the City Market.

The accounting firm funded the $20,000 restoration of the clock and contributed $5,000 to Indiana Landmarks.

Stevi Stoez, executive director of the Indianapolis City Market says the clock is just part of the rebound of the area.

“Like many destinations, City Market fell on hard times through the years and now has a great renaissance of its own – and it’s great for people to see. It’s a cultural gem,” Stoez says.

The clock has significant history in the city. Stoez says the clock comes from the first African-American owned jewelry store on Indiana Avenue, and was moved to the City Market in the 1970s.
