Iconic Kewaunee Clock Needs a New Home

The world’s tallest grandfather clock stands at the former Top of the Hill Shop in Kewaunee, &, it needs a new home. The clock was built in 1976 by Svoboda Industries to show their workmanship & as a gift to the city. It stands at 35 feet 10 inches tall & is a landmark attraction for anyone who has been to the city. Kewaunee County now owns the building where the clock stands & it is being used as an evidence storage site by the Kewaunee County Sherrif’s Department, not the ideal setting for a tourist attraction. Jason Jelinek has formed a group to save & hopefully move the clock to a more ideal location…
The group is working with the City of Kewaunee in trying to formulate a plan for the giant clock…
While a lot of people have expressed interest in keeping the clock a part of Kewaunee, Jelinek says more people are needed to help save it, & they can get involved in a number of different ways…
The biggest hurdle at this point is finding a suitable location for the clock’s long term home & the funding to restore & maintain it. The group is hoping that the clock can be placed on city property, but, private property would be an option if need be. Jelinek thinks this is a great opportunity for the community to come together & keep the landmark clock in Kewaunee…
