Description

The museum opened in 1971 and features the world's largest collection of Willard clocks. The collection is displayed in period room settings in the 1718 Joseph Willard homestead, the 1766 Benjamin Willard Clock Manufactory and three modern galleries, and also includes: more than 90 Willard clocks; Willard family portraits and furnishings; Colonial, Federal and Empire period furniture; antique Oriental rugs; 19th century women's costumes; 18th century American and English pewter; Victorian dolls and doll furniture; military and hunting weapons; Nipmuc Indian artifacts; and original documents signed by Thomas Jefferson and James Madison.

The museum's Board of Trustees is pleased to announce the creation of "The Legacy Society" at Willard House. Individuals, corporations and organizations contributing to the Legacy Fund with a lifetime gift of cash, stock or a Willard clock will become a Legacy Donor. They will be recognized in museum publications (unless the donor chooses to remain anonymous), as well as on a plaque at the museum. In addition, those notifying Willard House that the museum has been included in his or her will shall become a Legacy Donor.
