I love to hear stories about clocks. When I travel, I research clocks before I go, and then make it my challenge to find them photograph them, and find out more about them.

I also have another hub about the Mariposa County courthouse, which has a tower clock that has been running since 1854-- it runs on weights that have to be reset every three days.
