Using seamless USGS topographic data, we're able to create home decor featuring maps of your most meaningful places. Provide any U.S. address and artisans in New England will create a clock on cork-backed, rustic tumbled marble-that reproduces a map of your location.


The map will show topographical information covering nine square miles including your chosen location, with some main streets and major landmarks. A small compass rose will indicate your chosen location and the address you provide will be featured on the personalized map legend. See the images above for examples of maps featuring both rural and suburban areas. Comes ready to hang, or use our forged-steel easel (sold separately) to display the clock as a desk accessory.


Please note: Personalized items cannot be returned unless damaged or defective. Please check your order carefully; once placed, your order for this item cannot be canceled. Not available for shipment outside of the U.S. Please allow 2-3 weeks for delivery to the continental U.S. and 4-6 weeks for delivery to Alaska and Hawaii.


One AA battery, not included. 8" square.


What are topographical maps? Topographical maps display land features such as elevation, roads, water, mountains, and some significant landmarks. Town and county names are sometimes shown. Streets are sometimes labeled.


How old are the maps? Our maps were originally drawn as long ago as 1890 and may have been updated many times since. Each map has been updated at least as recently as 2008.


Why isn’t a specific street shown on my map? Cartography is the delicate balance between aesthetics and the need to convey huge amounts of information. The level of detail is dependent on the location and elevation, just as it is with online map services.


Why do you need a postal address? We create a 9-mile-square map with your chosen address just off center. We also type this address in the map legend. Please double-check the spelling! We do catch and fix most errors, but your help is much appreciated.


My map is off by a few miles or many miles! On rare occasions our mapping software does not recognize a location. This is more likely to happen in rural areas—you may have had similar experiences with online mapping services. If we do accidentally handcraft an incorrect map, we will work with you to determine the coordinates (latitude and longitude) of your location and create a new map for you using that data.


Why is my map so busy/so sparse? The charm of this product is that we use real maps, which are unique to every address. A map of New York City (population more than 8 million) will include many streets and alleys. A map of Box Elder, Montana (population just under 800), will be the exact opposite.


Our rustic tiles are carved from large marble blocks, ensuring that no two stones will ever be exactly alike. Then the pieces are tumbled to give them character that can be seen on every surface, edge, and corner. The result is a one-of-a-kind keepsake with more personality that would be possible from a piece of manufactured ceramic. Please see additional images for an example of a tumbled marble tile.

    The clock is great looking but did not display the requested street, though it exists on many maps and is bigger, more significant than very small streets shown. A major disappointment. Accompanying print completely misrepresents the if and why certain street names may not appear.

                This was a housewarming gift, and the location on the clock is where the couple got engaged. Everything about this gift was perfect, from the quality of the piece to the map location on the face. I think this is a perfect wedding or new home gift.

                      The map/clock was purchased for a second wedding gift and will be perfect for a couple who have everything they need. The map/clock has several major streets listed; graphics and color are sharply defined; the designated address is indicated with a compass image. Quality image!

                          Though we gave the address of our ranch, the area chosen was way too big, and so showed no defining characteristics which would show our ranch, i.e., Ruby River, Warm Springs Creek, buildings, nearby road.

                          Would like to return it if possible.

                                Bought both the "My Town" clock and the easel and stand for a college graduation present for my grandson -- with the map of his school, University of Notre Dame. Haven't given it to him yet, but I'm confident that he will love it. A nice keepsake with a practical aspect, it will be a decorative reminder of his 4 college years and will be useful as well.

                                Had not expected it to be so colorful. Colors in the map are pink, green, blue and cream

                                      I have not seen this item yet. It was a gift to my daughter who lives in another State. She placed it on her mantelpiece in her new home and loves it. It was a very appropriate item for her home. Based on what she told me, It' is unique, and I would consider buying another one again.

                                                Great, unique Gift Idea, although: 1) the topo is relatively large scale, so individual streets are pretty small on the map, and 2) better confirm the Lat/Lon of the house address (it might differ between Google Maps, Bing Maps, and USGS Maps). We found Google to be in error.

                                                  This was a great present for my Dad's birthday. I obtained his childhood address from my aunts. They weren't sure of the exact house number which was not a problem, the map was created around the street name only. I took other buyers' advice and bought the stand together with the clock. Nat Geo had a sale for the combination so my total including shipping was under $100. I will probably buy more of these for other family members and plan on trying the coasters as well.
