Atkinson Tower is the oldest standing structure in Kota Kinabalu, completed in 1905. It was built in the memory of Francis George Atkinson, Jesselton’s first district officer who died of Malaria or ‘Borneo Fever’ at the age of 28 in December 1902. His mother Mrs Mary Edith Atkinson presented a two-faced clock to Jesselton Town as a tribute to the memory of her son, which was funded by friends. Ref. Wikipedia
