Ithaca, NY isn’t just gorges, it also has a rich tradition of clock making. The Ithaca Clock Museum takes charge to preserve this heritage. Over 100 clocks are featured in the museum’s exhibition halls. Located in historic Fire House No. 5, the institution is one of those little American gems that keeps history ticking. Since learning and keeping American craft alive are always important and worthy activities, we suggest visiting Ithaca Clock Museum next time you roll upstate. (The website has some cool images too).
