Keeping track of times ever-rolling stream is done with ingenuity, elegance, beauty, and surprising accuracy by the clocks displayed in the J. Cheney Wells Clock Gallery at Old Sturbridge Village. Our forebears had a special understanding of the place of time in their lives for it was by creative and productive use of those precious hours left after the bare needs for subsistence and shelter had been met that the torches of learning and culture were kept ablaze. The antique clocks and their makers presented in this catalog reflect a dedication to quality as well as mechanical competence and design skill. It is our hope that this publication will provide an important perspective on some of New England's foremost craftsmen and entrepreneurs and the products of their labors which now serve yet another generation of an admiring public.
Old Sturbridge Village is one of the country’s oldest and largest living history museums, celebrating life in early New England from 1790–1840. Visitors interact with costumed historians, experience up-close demonstrations of early American trades, and meet heritage-breed farm animals. Situated on 200 scenic acres, the Village is a collection of more than 40 historic buildings including homes, meetinghouses, trade shops, working farms and three water-powered mills, restaurants, and retail shops.
