Clock Gallery

The J. Cheney Wells Clock Gallery was opened in 1982 to house the Village's extensive collection of early New England timepieces. Joel Cheney Wells was an avid clock collector, who along with his brother Albert Bachellor Wells were the founders of what became Old Sturbridge Village.

The exhibit contains dozens of clocks including many tall case ("grandfather") clocks. Visitors love to be in the gallery on the hour to listen to the old clocks strike the hour.
