The Chimney Point State Historic Site in Addison, Vermont (at the Champlain Bridge and Crown Point) is set to host the Green Mountain Timekeepers Society on Sunday, August 11, from noon to 4 pm.
The Society’s experts will be on the porch to share the history of clocks and watches and how they can be repaired.
The public is invited to bring old pocket watches and clocks, or photographs of them to show the timekeepers. Ask questions about them, how they work, and how they can be repaired. This program is included in the admission to the site ($5 for adults, free for children under 15).
The Chimney Point State Historic Site is located at 8149 VT Route 17 in Addison, at the Vermont foot of the Lake Champlain Bridge. Call (802) 759-2412 for information.
