New Ulm's Glockenspiel, MN








New Ulm's Glockenspiel
327 N Minnesota St
New Ulm, MN

I have been raised in a family where clocks are way cool. My Grandfather built clocks, grandfather clocks ...so I know the craftsmanship it takes to go into making a clock ...it take times, energy and true dedication. I felt the clock was not in tune ...and it is so loud ...time slots are 12 NOON, 3 & 5 PM, You will see these little folks come jumping out to do their dance. We got lunch just to see them do their things.Can you imagine living around there, hearing that day after day. I had to laugh. I guess it gives the area character, so that is so neat!! A real German feel .. lots of German restaurants, decor, festivities, etc. Thank you for stopping by. Hope you are well. Take Care. Be Well & Be Blessed!! Beth ( :

That is so cool. I'm guessing that the folks living near it get used to it and likely don’t even notice the hourly chimes.

Dells Mill, Augusta, Wisconsin

"Dells Mill", in Augusta, Wisconsin ...was a huge learning experience. Gus Clark, the museum guide was so great.

i just went to the website, to share the link with you guys and i see that Gus did pass away. i am trying to check my notes to see when we were there. we were trying to recall the day. my parents anniversary is August 24th. apparently the day he past away. (he was telling us that he did have some health issues, no details, but i thought he looked ok?) he was so cool. he was very descriptive and so fun to listen too. the mill had been in his family for years. he was just like a real history book. such a loss. (i just checked my notes we were there Thurs. 8/21) i hope he knew we enjoyed our visit. we told him so. thanked him for his time & explained we love seeing the odd, the different & the usual places throughout the US.

mills are becoming far and few. sad but true. ) :
