Giant cuckoo clock gets new home in Ohio village
SUGARCREEK, Ohio (AP) - May 31, 2012 (WPVI) -- One of the world's largest cuckoo clocks has a new home in an Ohio village.
The wooden clock measures more than 23 feet tall, 24 feet wide and 13 feet deep. It was hauled Wednesday from a vacant lot to a street corner in Sugarcreek, about 70 miles south of Cleveland.
It features a hand-carved, five-piece band playing music and a cuckoo bird that sounds at regular intervals. Sugarcreek Mayor Clayton Weller tells The Times-Reporter in nearby New Philadelphia the clock doesn't function and will get needed electrical work to operate again.
A Swiss cheese maker added the clock at his restaurant near Wilmot three decades ago. The restaurant closed in 2009, and the clock was sold to an Ohio man who agreed to move it to Sugarcreek.
