Just Hanging Out At The Archives

The society recently added something new to their walls at the Archives — two clocks!
Those of you who haven’t visited the society’s Archives for some time should stop by and see what’s hanging out there. The clocks that were just placed on the walls last week are a rare Waterbury “Leipsic” model walnut parlor/regulator clock circa 1895-1915. This clock once hung in the Keystone Hotel ClockKeystone Hotel in Mifflin, PA and actually survived the fire that took place in that Hotel in March, 1968.

The other clock once was in the Port Royal Times building that was located on Fourth Street, Port Royal and was a gift from a society member.

Both of these pieces make a nice addition to the Archives for visitors to see as they work on research projects.

Come visit and check the time on one of the clocks on the wall. You could also take a minute to do some research on local history or your own family members while you’re there.  The Archives is open Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. or call 717-436-5174 to make special arrangements, or for directions or more information.
