The Clock Tower In East Liverpool

The clock tower in East liverpool is impressive. It is beautiful. I want the old one back though. I would love to have seen the original. I mean look at it. This building is a ghost hunters dream!
I can just picture the long dark hallways with cobwebbs every where. I mean it looks like a part of Hogwartz! The fact that East Liverpool had such a cool building in it and they tore it down? Ugh!!! Yes they rebuilt it. But it is nowhere near what was originally there! Which would you rather have? Give me the original!
Why did this building get torn down? I am looking into it, but if any one out there knows anything, tell!
I got a comment that asked if I was for real. Ghosts come from our history. Things that have already happened in buildings that were built in their time, not ours. Keep knocking them down and where are the ghosts going to go? They sure can't live in a parking lot. Ya, I am for real. I care about my community and my history. I am not afraid to say how I feel or let people know when I think they are wrong. Tearing down this building was wrong. Tearing down the Ceramic Theatre was wrong. I have to speak up and at least let someone know that I want to somehow keep The Smith Auto Parts Building, not because it is an auto parts store, but because it was Potters National Bank once upon a time. I want Riverview florist to stay right where it is, adding beauty and history to our city. I don't want to be looking at a picture like the one above and wishing I could see it for real. Do you?

Believe me, if there is anything I can find that can be done about it, I will let you know. I think it starts with letting the mayor and other officials of the City of East Liverpool know what you want. No one has said they mind if these buildings are destroyed. So the first thing to do is say something. Let Mayor Swogger and the city council know you are unhappy about losing these buildings.
