Huntingdon County Landmarks, Huntingdon, PA
Seth Thomas #16 with time and hour toll functions. This timepiece
has suffered not only the indignity of electrification but the
cast iron bridge has been sawed off where the pendulum would have
hung and the intermediate cast iron plate that supports the escape
wheel shaft, verge and third wheel is missing. Most of the original
mechanical components have been removed and are also missing along
with the weights, pulleys and pendulum.
The Huntingdon County Landmarks, The Huntingdon Borough Council
and the First Presbyterian Church want their Seth Thomas timepiece
restored back to its original fully mechanical operation and on
display and operating the hands on the four 8’dials from the street
level entry of the church for all to enjoy and we are honored
to do so.
