Hallelujah

Hallelejah

The Apostles Clock was created by a local resident in 1895 and still performs hourly in the Oshkosh Public Museum.  Every hour on the hour an angel strikes a gong, a figure of Jesus emerges with outstretched arms and the twelve Apostles parade before Him to receive His blessing.  The clock is completely mechanical, operated by pulleys, weights and springs.
