Celebrating Daniel Wolff’s Clock

Remembering the settlement and development of the Wachovia Tract remains a vital part of our community’s character. Bethania has been at the forefront of many exciting preservation successes. Conservation of over 180 acres of our landscape, restoration of the Wolff-Moser House, and the opening of Historic Bethania Visitor Center are worthy of celebrating.

Last fall, the Town of Bethania purchased Daniel Wolff’s tall case clock. Bethania’s Board of Commissioners felt that acquiring this object helps in telling the story of our community via its historic museum house.

Join us for a celebration of Daniel Wolff and his clock. Our afternoon features talks that present the story and background of a clock signed on the interior backboard “Clock made August 17, 1803 Daniel Wolff”.

Daniel Ackermann will discuss the history of Old Salem and MESDA field research; these research projects  documented our clock during the 1960’s. Daniel is Associate Curator of the MESDA Collection.

Johanna Brown provides an overall view of the objects created by the Moravians in the Wachovia Tract. Johanna is Curator of Moravian Decorative Arts, Old Salem Museum.

Mark Farnsworth will review the history of the Wolff-Moser house and our successful acquisition of the Daniel Wolff clock.
