House Clock

House Clock

During a drive to Topeka on US40 a couple of weeks ago I spied this house. And while my wife was driving I managed to anticipate and grab a photo from the car on the way back. If you look at the house you immediately notice a very large clock adorning the facade. Based on the times I saw both going and coming, the clock is a working clock. I would LOVE to get the story behind that. Is this guy just a clock freak and built it for fun? Did they acquire it somehow when a bank was torn down? Do they have to wind it? Is it electrically powered? It has to require some major maintenance. You can't exactly take it to the jeweler to have it cleaned.
