Our Mission


Our Mission

Cabarrus Time Savers is a non-profit organization that has set out to identify and restore important public time pieces in our community. We consider tower and street clocks to be an important part of our history, in Cabarrus County. For many decades, people planned their day to day lives around clocks in the public eye. We are dedicated to preserving, repairing, and restoring these clocks.

The purpose of this blog is to bring you history of our local horology, news of our current projects, and provide a means to communicate with the community when we need help with historical facts and locating clocks and missing parts for these clocks.

If you would like to donate to our restoration funds please send check or money order to:

Cabarrus Time Savers

P.O. Box 1094

Concord, NC 28026


If there is a clock in our community that you feel is important or that may even be missing, please reach out to us.


Thank you!

Paint Recovery Updates

The past few months have been dirty, but exciting.  Much of the original paint has now been exposed on the bottom portion of the support chassis of the clock.  Although much of the paint is damaged from years of abuse and from excess oil sitting around, much of it is salvageable.

The upright side plates, unfortunately, must have been stripped and repainted.  They do not appear to have any of the original paint left underneath.  These will have to get repainted to best match the original paint and art work, as well as all the wheels from the going and strike trains.

Stay tuned for more updates.  Here are some pictures for everyone to enjoy!

Some of the original components from Allen that have been cleaned up and prepped for restoration and re-paint.
