Urge Officials to Save Clock Tower / Hooper Turret

April 5, 2011 Leave a comment

The Clock Tower and Hooper Turret at Worcester State Hospital do not qualify for Federal Historic Tax Credits. Without these credits, there’s little chance a developer would be interested in retro-fitting the structures – now they face demolition. These structures were saved from the wrecking ball with the intent they could be incorporated with the new Psychiatric facility, Biotech Park or the University of Massachusetts Medical School.

Preservation Worcester officials are trying to rally support through Facebook. Please take a moment to “like” this page to show your support and spread the word.
