Photo Challenge #428

Grandfather clocks are — well, old.

But who knew there were so many in Westport?

Last week’s Photo Challenge showed a classic tall, pendulum timekeeper.

Guesses for its location included Town Hall, the Westport Woman’s Club, Museum for History & Culture, Senior Center, and Greens Farms train station.

Wrong. Wrong. Wrong. Wrong. Wrong.

The correct answer is: the Westport Weston Family YMCA.

The grandfather clock in Tom Lowrie’s photo (click here to see) stands inside the lobby, just to the right of the entrance.

I’ve heard it ring a couple of times at noon, but otherwise it’s easy to overlook.

Of course, every “06880” reader will check it out on their next Y visit.

Barbara Wiederecht, Brian Larson, Jeff Loechner, Jalna Jaeger, Richard Hyman and Matt McGrath all chimed in with the right answer.

Today’s Photo Challenge is a familiar feature in old Westport architecture. But where exactly is this one?
