Sentimental Sunday: Steinle Automatic Wonder Clock at Cedar Point Town Hall Museum






















Though it is no longer operating, Frank Steinle's Automatic Wonder Clock is now on display at the Town Hall Museum at Cedar Point. Frank Steinle was a native of Germany who settled in Sandusky. It took him twenty five years to build this amazing clock. According to a post at the Sandusky History website, there were five themes on the clock: the races of man, the four periods of life, angels, patriotism and religion. Read more about this clock at Sandusky History. The workmanship on this clock is outstanding.

































If you find yourself at Cedar Point, and you're not a big fan of coasters, at the Town Hall Museum you can see many historical photographs and artifacts, which chronicle the history of the amusement park that has meant so much to our area for well over one hundred years!
