On Thursday, June 27th, at 1:00 PM, I'll be conducting a tour of the clocks in the Clock Gallery, with help from the curator. NAWCC has arranged a very favorable entry price for the day of only $19.00, and addition to visiting the clock gallery with us you can tour the Village throughout the day.

The J. Cheney Wells collection of early American clocks is quite comprehensive, from early iron and brass movement tall case clocks, rare banjo timepieces, Massachusetts shelf clocks, pillar & scroll shelf clocks, and wooden movement tall case clocks, including one of my favorites, a blue painted wooden movement tall case clock likely from northern Massachusetts or southern New Hampshire, circa 1803, maker unknown. We'll have the bonnet off so that the wonderfully crude movement can be examined. I hope to see you there! (photo courtesy of O.S.V.)
