About Chapter #134
Chapter 134 was chartered in 1985 to satisfy a need for those of us who are fascinated by those huge old clocks, once known as "everyone's pocket watch".  The members of this Chapter are scattered all over the country and the world, in contrast to the more usual geographical centering of a Chapter's membership.  The majority of tower clocks (known in England as turret clocks) and street clocks are also widely scattered, and are rather difficult to collect.

The Chapter holds regular meetings in conjunction with three Regional or National Meetings of NAWCC, as follows:

  • the Southern Ohio Regional (at Ft.Mitchell, KY, in April)
  • the National Convention (place varies from year to year; in June)
  • the Eastern States Regional (at Syracuse, NY, in August)

An important activity of the Chapter is NAWCC's Public Time Initiative, currently in Phase IB as the Spot-A-Clock project.  Contributions to this project from the public are now welcomed.

The chapter was originally named the Tower Clock Chapter, and focused its interests entirely on tower clocks.  In 2015, the name of the chapter was changed and the focus was expanded to include street clocks; the name of the newsletter was changed accordingly.

The background of this page illustrates the clock tower at NAWCC's Headquarters and Museum building in Columbia, Pennsylvania.
