The Willard House & Clock Museum
The Willard House is one of Grafton's oldest buildings and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It was constructed in the early 1700s by Joseph Willard. Four of his grandsons became well-known clockmakers, working in the western part of the state. The museum, founded in 1969, features the world's largest collection of clocks made by the Willards, displayed in period room settings in the 1718 Joseph Willard homestead, the 1766 Benjamin Willard Clock Manufactory and three modern galleries. In addition to more than 90 Willard clocks, there are also 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 Willard House offers guided tours, which last approximately an hour, and are conducted on a first-come, first-served basis.
