Saving Kewaunee’s Clock

If you leave Kewaunee in a hurry, it’s easy to miss the world’s largest grandfather clock sitting on a hill north of town.  The company that built the clock moved three years ago, leaving it behind.  Producer Joe Hardtke takes us to meet the man who’s trying to save time. 

Special thanks to WFRV-TV in Green Bay for the archival clock story from 1984.
