Sugarcreek at night

Last night, my wife and I took a drive out to Amish country and stopped in Sugarcreek.  Sugarcreek is also known as the "Little Switzerland of Ohio" thanks to many Swiss and German immigrants that settled there.  The town is also home to the worlds largest cuckoo clock. It's a lovely small town in Ohio that is normally buzzing with tourists on a Saturday.  But at night, it's pretty deserted.  So much so that we almost felt like we were in high school out past curfew and we were going to get in trouble.  We strolled around the town a bit and visited the clock as well as checked out the new brick carving featuring local communities.  Why brick, you say?  Sugarcreek is also home to the Belden Brick Company and is a large part of the town.  Pretty interesting detail in carvings.  Especially the carving dedicated to former resident Lt. General Donald L. Putt.
