Annual Meeting

Join Ashby Historical Society for our Annual Meeting on Thursday, October 26th at 6:00 pm in the Library for a special presentation on Ashby clocks. The Edwards family and the Willard family were two prominent Ashby clock makers in the late 18th and early 19th century.  This special presentation by Tom Dorward  will discuss the history of the families and the clocks. Tom has been repairing clocks in Ashby for a number of years.
