Spot A Clock: St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Muskego

March 2014’s ‘Spot a Clock’ is St. Paul’s Lutheran Church, located at S66 W14325 Janesville Road in Muskego.

St. Paul’s started as a small wooden church constructed on 2 acres of land in 1858. As the congregation grew, a brick church was built, and was dedicated in 1905. The small church features a beautiful pipe organ. The clock is currently cared for by Jerry Kurth, whose great-grandfather farmed land in the area and donated land for the church.

The clock is in original condition, complete with its original weights and pulley system. The steeple houses a well-preserved three-train Schwalbach clock movement. This clock is one of the last original, operating Schwalbach movements in existence. Recently, the clock experienced some operational issues. Through member Paul Schmitz, Mr. Kurth contacted Chapter 47, which has been providing some assistance with the clock.

Can you guess the location of the clock below?

I hope everyone enjoyed the new location, it is: Knights of Columbus, 1800 South 92nd Street, West Allis, WI 53214. Everything went well and I heard the coffee was good.

Thanks to Robert Olney for his talk at the September meeting. His talk was on World War II ships clocks. He discussed that most of the ships clocks for the US were made by two different manufactures, Chelsea and Seth Thomas. While the clocks are similar there are many variances between the manufactures. Robert brought along many examples for us to see. Thanks for enlightening us about these clocks.

Brad Smith is going to do a presentation at the November 19 meeting on the Rolling Ball Clock he built.

We need presentations for upcoming meetings. If you have any suggestions or would like to do a presentation please contact Harry Schulz.

We will be having a board meeting after the presentation to discuss future chapter ideas. Please pass along any ideas you may have to me or any officers or board members.

Thank you,
Craig White
