WORLD'S TALLEST GRANDFATHER CLOCK
Located in Kewaunee, Wisconsin
Contributed by Rod & Judy Ness of Hermantown, Minnesota
World's Largest Grandfather Clock
Judy Ness

The world's tallest grandfather clock serves as the backdrop for a nice shot of Rod and Judy's 1993 Corvette. The 'Vette and Rod in turn provide scale for this behemoth of a timepiece. The clock is about 40 feet tall and -- appropriately -- stands in front of a former clock shop. We do not know the history of the clock -- if you have any information to share, please contact us and we will add it to this page.

Location:
This is located at the front of the old Svoboda Industries plant on WI State Highway 42, (Milwaukee Street) in Kewaunee. For a couple of years, the building was a clock store, but at the current time it is vacant. The current company is located a couple of blocks to the east:
