Hammond-Harwood House: Tick-Tock 60 Minutes with the Clocks
June 19 @ 2:00 pm
Explore the Hammond-Harwood House collection of nine elaborate clocks from the 17th, 18th, and early 19th centuries. The tour begins with an in-depth history of timekeeping from sundials to Chinese water clocks. The tour will examine each item, admiring the individual creation of the piece, its decorative design, and the social history connected to it. You will come away from this experience with a better appreciation for what time meant to our ancestors as well as how we tell time today. In partnership with local horologist Stephen Sieracki, Hammond-Harwood House is engaged in a project to bring all nine clocks in the collection to working order.
