East New Jersey Colonial Clockmakers
Posted: September 2, 2006
Dr. David Sperling, antiquarian and horological expert, will give a presentation on the colonial clockmakers of east New Jersey on Wednesday, September 20, 2006. The event, which is sponsored by the Historical Society of Old Randolph, is open to the public.
Dr. Sperling’s discussion will focus on the east New Jersey clockmakers who lived in the area during the 100 year period between 1740 and 1840. New Jersey clock production ceased around 1840 after New Jersey artisans created some of the most beautiful time pieces found in Colonial America.
The presentation will take place at 7:30 p.m. at the Randolph Museum. The museum is located in the historic Brundage House at the main entrance to Randolph’s Freedom Park on Millbrook Avenue.
There will be a $2.00 admission charge ($1.00 for members of the Historical Society of Old Randolph). Free light refreshment will be served.
This program concludes the 2006 lecture series sponsored by the Historical Society of Old Randolph. For more information, please call 973.989.7095.
