A forty-five minute history presentation presents the colorful, well known Baltimore figure, which is behind the iconic tower the clock and his famous headache remedy Bromo Seltzer. The Emerson Tower comes to life as we share humorous stories which highlight the forward thinking business and marketing strategies of Isaac Emerson. The presentation starts with a video and ends on a very high note as guests climb to the 16th floor via a “ships ladder”’ into the marvelous industrial mechanical room clock room, which houses the clock mechanism, the elevator switchboards and motors. Guests are encouraged to bring their cameras to capture the 24 foot clock dials as a backdrop.
Tours cost $5. Access into the clock room is by ships ladder which requires that each guest sign a liability waiver stating they are aware of the danger of climbing the ladder. Please arrive 10 minutes prior to the tour you wish to participate in.
