Flossmoor clock tower

DeLorean is on hand for dedication of new Flossmoor downtown clocks

Believe it or not, Flossmoor’s downtown clocks had their own “Back to the Future” moment more than 35 years ago. Mayor Paul Braun said the timepieces in Flossmoor’s clock tower were rendered inoperable during a 1981 thunderstorm.

Committee members eye restoration of Flossmoor’s downtown clock tower

Fans of “Back to the Future” remember a downtown clock tower that plays a notable role in the film. Flossmoor's clock tower is not nearly as famous, but it's about to receive some local attention as a group of area residents is moving ahead with plans to install functional timepieces at the tower.

About Us

A great community deserves a great newspaper. The HF Chronicle was created in June 2014 as the Homewood Chronicle (but we soon realized Homewood and Flossmoor are so interconnected that it makes better sense to cover both villages). Our mission is to chronicle the life of our community — news by, for, and about the people of Homewood and Flossmoor, Illinois.
