Historic Rock Ford welcomes Bob Frishman as he presents “Edward Duffield: Philadelphia Clockmaker, Citizen, Gentleman 1730-1803” on Saturday, September 28, 2024, at 2 PM in the Langmuir Education Room located on the first floor of the Rock Ford Barn, 881 Rockford Road, Lancaster, PA.

Frishman will present an informative historical overview on Edward Duffield, who was far more than a clockmaker in 18th century Philadelphia. A wealthy property owner and active civic and Anglican Church leader, Duffield nonetheless made, repaired, and sold elegant floor-standing clocks, surveying instruments, and sundials that today are in museums and private collections. He was also a life-long friend of Benjamin Franklin and served as executor of Franklin’s estate. Frishman’s presentation will be supplemented with over 100 images from his newly released comprehensive biography of Duffield which addresses all aspects of the clockmaker’s life and the practice of clockmaking in Colonial America.

This presentation is free of charge, but all guests are required to register at rockford.yapsody.com due to space restrictions.
