The time in Tennesee is:
The Clock Tower at Austin Peay State University
When the Browning Administration Building at
Austin Peay State
Tragically, on January 22, 1999, an F-4 rated tornado ripped through Clarksville and the university campus. The cupola was ripped off the tower and the clock stopped, but none of its four faces or the speakers that broadcast the chimes, were destroyed. When the workmen checked the clock and the chimes, they found that they were still working.

A new cupola was built and on September 29, 1999, a crane lowered it back on top of the clock. At a ceremony for the clock, a time capsule was put in the cupola. The students of Burt Elementary and Austin Peay State University and the residents of Clarksville are very happy to have their historic clock back in one piece.
