Description:
  • Not too far up the wall of Union Hall is this vertical rectangular dial about 2x3 foot in size. The limestone dial is embedded in the stone block wall. The declining dial has hour lines every half hour from 5am to 6pm, but the gnomon is missing, leaving only a bronze stain on the light stone face. Most disturbing is a magnolia tree planted by the class of 1972 that now totally blocks sunlight from reaching the dial.
