This construction dates from the year of 1872, the particularity of this building as well as that of the church was the construction of its sidewalks, since they measure approximately two meters high. The height of these sidewalks obeyed the need to protect the town from the floods caused by the overflow of the Fuerte River. Later, in the period of the government of Don Ramón C. López, the public clock was donated by General Alvaro Obregón, President of Mexico. It is necessary to point out that this watch, despite its age (82 years), still works with admirable precision.
