Featured on the cover of the Guinness Book of World Records in 1977, the World’s Largest Cuckoo Clock made quite the journey before ending up in Sugarcreek. In the early 70s, the family who owned the Alpine Alpa Restaurant in Wilmot, Ohio, commissioned the clock to be built. When the restaurant closed in 2009, the clock was purchased and restored and found its new home on the square in downtown Sugarcreek. Over 23 feet tall and 24 feet wide, the Sugarcreek clock is all clock, with innards that are a maze of mechanical parts and 1972 transistor technology. Every-half-hour, a cuckoo bird pops out and then you hear Swiss polka music playing as the band emerges and the couple dances.
