Activity Overview

The Willard House & Clock Museum has a proud history making some of the finest clocks in the world. On a visit to the Willard homestead you will step back in time to appreciate the craftsmanship and beauty of the clocks produced by successive generation of watchmakers. The house itself is the oldest in Graton. It dates back to the early 1700's and is a wonderful sight in itself. Its interior is filled with furniture and various artifacts that give an insight into life in previous eras as well as illuminating the history of this important family.

Things to Do

  • Different rooms in the house are dressed up to represent different periods of past centuries. So you can see furnishings from the Colonial, Federal and Empire periods along with 18th and 19th century clothes, dolls, portraits and documents. Most important of all is the collection of clocks which numbers over 90 in total. These wonderful creations are positioned alongside everything else in the rooms themselves and in three modern galleries.
  • Different events for children, adults and families are organized at the Willard House throughout the year. Come along for Teddy Bear Tea with Simon Bear or reserve a Once upon a Storytime for your kids. Every Sunday there is free tea and a specialist talk which you can take advantage of once you have paid for admission. These events and many more talk place at different intervals throughout the year, check out their events page for more info.
