The Elkhart County Courthouse Clock DVD

… and what makes it tick

Take a “full-blown” tour of the 1870 tower clock located in the courthouse. The only difference between the actual tour and watching the video is that you won’t get dirty and you won’t have to climb the creepy ladders to get to the dome where the four clock faces are located. Did you know that the clock mechanism is located on one level, the clock faces on another level, and the bell on yet another level? This ancient mechanism, which is powered 100% by gravity, still keeps time accurate within a couple of seconds each week and, due to synthetic lubricants, runs even better today than it did when it was installed in 1870.

Runtime approx. 50 minutes.
