"Keney memorial tower (1898) cor. of Main and Ely Sts., a French Gothic tower like the Tour St. Jacques in Paris, was built to house a clock and chimes, and to provide 'a monument to a Mother,' by Walter and Henry Keney, Hartford merchants, on the site of their former home. It is said to be the first momument erected to commemorate a woman who had no other claim than that of being a true and self-sacrificing parent." From: Connecticut, a guide to its roads, lore, and people. Boston, Houghton Mifflin, 1938. (Mother's name not given.).
