This historic structure, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, was modeled after the Palazzo Vecchio in Florence, Italy. The Bromo Seltzer Arts Tower was completed in 1911 and was the tallest building in Baltimore at the time. It has been a Baltimore landmark ever since. The tower was built by Captain Isaac Emerson, the inventor of the headache remedy Bromo Seltzer. The most interesting feature is the still-functioning tower clock, the face of which displays the word Bromo Seltzer instead of numbers. Each of the clocks’ faces measure 24 feet in diameter, one foot larger than the clock faces on London’s Big Ben. The famous clock atop the tower holds its own separate historic registration.
