MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) -- Minneapolis' historic timepiece is lit up once again.

The clock bells played during a lighting ceremony Monday night of the Minneapolis City Hall clock.

It's been nearly a year since restoration work began. Crews replaced the white clock faces with glass similar to what the clock had when it was first built more than a century ago.

The clock's framing was also replaced, and it now glows like it did when it was built. It is now the largest four-faced chiming clock in the world.
