GEORGETOWN, SC (WCSC) - Five years ago, the town clock in Georgetown was struck by lightning and time has been frozen ever since.

On Tuesday, the Rice Museum announced that the Verdin Company in Cincinnati, Ohio is coming to the rescue and delivering new clock components this week.

Repairs got underway to fix the landmark in December 2010.

After years of applying for grants and final approval by the National Parks Service, Rice museum officials expect work and installation of the new clock to start within a few weeks.
