Atkinson Clock Tower
The Tower stands prominently on the bluff along Signal Hill Road. Mary Edith Atkinson
build the Tower in 1905 in memory of her son, Francis George Atkinson the popular
first District Officer of Kota Kinabalu. It was formerly used as a navigation aid
for ships until it was overshadowed by taller buildings. Today, this memorial has
the distinction of being the oldest standing structure in the whole of Sabah that
survived the air raids and blitz of World War II.
