This photograph shows the clock over the second floor office door at the school now known as Kilbourne Middle School. The office was used by the principal of the school for many years, while the Worthington Schools superintendent occupied the first floor office.

In 1938, the student population had grown substantially in Worthington, and the school board determined it was necessary to replace the 1875 and 1893 school buildings on the original school lot. A colonial style building was constructed and opened in 1938. The building housed elementary and junior high school students. It had an auditorium on the west end and a gymnasium on the west. The central entry facing Granville Road was capped by a bell tower containing the original bell James Kilbourne had purchased for the 1808 Worthington Academy building.

This photograph was taken when John Snouffer visited the school to photograph the bell in the tower. The bell tower is accessed by entering the "office" door, now repurposed into a classroom, and using a ladder in a storage closet.
