More Info →Newspaper article regarding a replacement cross for the Palmerston North Clock Tower

A cross was first affixed to the top of the Clock Tower in The Square, Palmerston North, in December 1960. Although intended to be temporary it became permanant. In 1981 local Christians paid for a new, permanant cross, with the Palmerston North City Council paying for installation and maintenance. The 'new' cross subsequently blew down in 2006 and was replaced by a lantern style cross in 2007. Having a cross on top of the Clock Tower has been debated throughout the years.
