You ask someone to tell you the time and they're likely to look at the cell phone or computer. The days of using actually clocks are winding down. But there are still many people, Kathie and Steve Fuston (pronounced like Houston) who appreciate clocks for the intricate, beautiful devices they are. Rob Wilds recently went to their home in Columbia to meet them and to get a look at their wonderful collection of clocks.
The Clock Exhibit at the Polk Home in Columbia has been changed to another exhibit. Please visit the Polk Home web site to see what is currently on exhibit. http://www.jameskpolk.com
