Allen Bradley Clock Tower

Experience the "The largest four-faced clock!"

Category: Play  
 

Bigger than Big Ben, octagonal in shape to reflect the A-B logo as it existed for decades, high and bright enough to be used as a nautical navigation tool miles out into Lake Michigan, the Allen-Bradley clock is one of Milwaukee's best-known landmarks.

Perched atop the clock, 17 stories above South Second Street, the 360-degree panoramic view of the city, lake and horizon approaches breathtaking proportions. You're high enough to see for miles, yet low enough to view details in all directions: downtown's skyscrapers give way to neighborhoods; new condo buildings emerge from rusted-out factories abutting the Amtrak line from Chicago; massive ships creep under the Hoan Bridge; cars and trucks hustle -- and sometimes crawl -- along Interstate-94/43 as it cuts past South Side neighborhoods and city icons like St. Stanislaus' twin church towers; Miller Park dominates the horizon to the northwest, but if you look closely enough on a clear day, the twin steeples of Holy Hill pierce the horizon some 30 miles away.



Features
  • The top of the clock offers what is perhaps Milwaukee's best view, but the indoor patio and observation area with walls of windows, couches for lounging and a bar, is less well-known.

Notes

To check out the view from the Allen-Bradley Clock Tower, keep an eye on community and organization fund raisers and charity events; they will sometimes have an "evening in the clock tower," complete with a stocked bar, available for auction.
