We all knew the Rockford Clock Tower was closed and sold, but nothing could prepare us for the clock tower without its clockface.

In a photo posted to Instagram by moonpiepudding, the Rockford Clock Tower looks strange without its clock face.

After being sold for nearly $3.6M, the Rockford Clock Tower is going to under go some major changes. Removing the clock face is step one.

A casino and a "new hotel and restaurant and entertainment site" have been discussed as possible replacement ideas by head investor Brent Johnson to the Rockford Register Star.

The good news? Rockford people can't complain about the Clock Tower clock showing the wrong time anymore.
