GRAFTON – Willard House and Clock Museum, 11 Willard St., has successfully passed its 50-year mark and it has now raised its sights to better support the science of horology. 

The museum wants to reach out to the community, and improve its facilities – all to continue its mission “to preserve, display and connect through education and research, the contributions of the Willard family of clockmakers.”

“Willard is unique among the country’s museums,” said Executive Director Robert C. Cheney. “Our nonprofit holds the world’s largest collection of Willard clocks, and we wish to make the museum a regional standout for a larger audience. Our fundraising effort gives us the ability to expand our efforts, and the annual appeal is critical in making our efforts a reality.”

“Donations will have a greater impact this year,” said Director of Development Robert Gierschick. “Contribute between now and Dec. 15, 2023, and the donation will get a 20% match.”

Those who wish to donate have these options:

  • Stop by the museum or mail a check to Willard House and Clock Museum, 11 Willard St., North Grafton, MA 01536.
