Harvey Water Clock

Patented in 1798, the Harvey Water Clock is a pretty cool clock!  It basically consists of a bunch of different sized gears that all turn at different specific rates to keep track of the time, day, month, and year, and the initial gears are set in motion by a waterwheel.  It is located in a section of Dollywood, and as you can see in the photo above from our most recent trip there in the year 1880, it still works like a charm!

Don’t forget to set your clocks forward one hour as Daylight Saving Time begins Sunday morning!
