World's Tallest Grandfather Clock
Built as a 1976 Bicentennial project by Svoboda Industries, a local manufacturer of custom wood products. The Colonial-style redwood grandfather clock stands nearly 36 feet tall, has three faces -- morning, noon and night -- real clockwork, motor, mechanisms, and chimes.
The clock was eventually moved to the Top of the Hill Shop, just north of town on a rise above Lake Michigan. But the shop went out of business, the building was sold to the police as an evidence storage facility, and the clock's power was turned off. As of 2013 the police want the clock moved -- somewhere, anywhere -- because they really don't want people coming around to their high-security facility and snapping photos.
Kewaunee hopes to be able to move the clock downtown and restore it to operating condition -- similar to what was done in Ohio with the World's Largest Cuckoo Clock.
