There is a new Westclox Museum in Peru, Illinois. It is housed in the former Westclox factory at 350 5th Street. My friends Cheryl and Gary Biolchini and I visited on October 31st. Even though the museum has been open only since last February, the founders and dedicated volunteers have gathered a wonderful selection of clocks, watches, tools, photos, historical documents, etc., with more being added all the time.
Below are some of the many items on display. Besides artifacts, they are gathering stories and information on those that worked at Westclox. It will be well worth your while to visit, and they are open several days per week (they might have reduced hours during the winter). Their website gives the hours they are open to the public.
