Historical Notes : The Only "Charles Kessler's General Store" that I could find was in Farmington, in Van Buren County, Iowa. The first Store predates this clock because it Burned Down in a Large Fire caused by a lamp explosion back in 1874. This clock must have been used in the newer store rebuilt after this fire.
