  • Handcrafted by local artisan, Alan Winick, this tide clock has the image of Race Point Light in historic Provincetown, Massachusetts, with a harbor tide that rises and falls as the actual tide in your location goes from high to low.
    • Race Point Light was first established in 1816 and the original light was a 25 foot rubblestone tower that featured one of the earliest rotating beacons. 
    • In 1858 the light received a 4th order Fresnel lens and in 1874, a second keeper's quarters.
    • After significant deterioration of the original tower, it was replaced in 1876 with a 45-foot tall cast iron tower lined with brick and equipped with a Fresnel lens. The original keeper's stone house was removed and replaced with one made of wood
    • In 1960 the larger keeper's house was removed and the other house updated.
    • In 1972 the light was automated.
    • In 1995, the keeper's house was again updated and overnight stays were offered in the rooms.
    • Currently, the facility is operated by both a solar electrical system and a wind turbine back-up generator.
    • Operation of the site is managed by the American Lighthouse Foundation and tours are available on the first and third Saturdays from June until October.
    • Both the Keeper's House and the Whistle House are available for overnight rental.
  • Tide clock has a blue wood frame with dual faced clock.
  • Bottom of clock provides the traditional tide clock showing current tide. Dial provides hours to high tide and to low tide.
  • Top of clock is what makes this time piece truly unique.  A mechanically animated display of the waterline of the Herring Cove and the Atlantic Ocean rises and falls as the tide goes from high to low.
