The Halifax Town Clock, built on the east side of Citadel Hill under the direction of Prince Edward, Duke of Kent, began keeping time for the garrison and town residents. It is said that the prince, then commander in chief of all military forces in British North America, wished to resolve the tardiness of the local garrison. (Also see Prince Edward, June 28, 1794.).
