This lady made a video of the Engle Clock at the The National Clock and Watch Museum in Lancaster, PA. As of 2020, this museum houses over 12,000 watches and clocks. When it opened in 1977, it housed fewer than 1,000 items.

The short video before the photos in this video was when she sat for the presentation of the 1,049 lb. Engle Clock. This marvel of a clock was sent on tour across the United States for 70 years, from around 1881 to 1951, when it disappeared from public view.

The clock was rediscovered in a barn in the 1980’s and lovingly restored by staff at the museum. It currently runs for visitors at the museum at noon and 2 pm. According to their website, the museum recently reopened on November 3, 2020 to members and on November 4, 2020 to the public – since it was previously closed for months due to COVID-19.
