The Ellen E Ward Memorial Clock Tower in the village of Roslyn, New York, was built in 1895.
It was commissioned as a memorial to prominent Roslyn resident Ellen Ward by her children after her death in 1893. The clock tower was designed by the New York firm Lamb & Rich and features four clock faces and a Seth Thomas Clock Company mechanism.
The granite and red sandstone clock tower stands at the intersection of Main Street and Old Northern Boulevard in Roslyn’s Main Street Historic District. An inscription above the tower door reads:
IN LOVING MEMORY OF
ELLEN E. WARD AD 1895
TO WHOM ROSLYN AND ITS PEOPLE WERE DEAR
SHE FELL ASLEEP JANUARY 18TH 1893
