(UPI) -- One of the largest cuckoo clocks in the world has been moved to its new permanent home at an Ohio intersection.
The clock, which measures 23 feet, 6 inches tall and 24 feet wide, was installed Wednesday morning at the intersection of Main and Broadway streets in Sugarcreek, The Times-Reporter, New Philadelphia, Ohio, reported Thursday.
"The Cuckoo Clock has real working mechanism, a hand-carved five piece band playing music, a couple dancing the polka and a hand-carved cuckoo bird that sounds every 30 minutes and on the hour. We also have the waterfall that was added later," Sugarcreek Mayor Clayton Weller said. "It will take several months to get the clock working."
The clock, which was once certified as the largest by Guinness World Records, was obtained by Mark Coblentz of Walnut Creek Cheese when its original home, Grandma's Alpine Alpha Homestead Restaurant near Wilmot closed in 2009. Sugarcreek businessman Lavon Daugherty recently convinced Coblentz to move the clock to Sugarcreek, officials said.
