PLYMOUTH - The Plymouth Historical Society will participate in Connecticut Open House Day on Saturday by opening its museum at 572 Main St., Plymouth, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., free of charge.
This year’s “Gearheads” exhibit focuses on how Eli Terry invented machinery to mass produce the wooden gears needed to make clocks affordable to everyday people in the 1800s. Visitors can try making gears and see how the machines worked. Tom Vaughn has reproduced Terry’s machines to create his own wooden clock gears. Come see how mass production started in the United States.
New this year, Ogo’s Curios, a private collection of arcane Americana located at 160 Main St., Terryville, will be open from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Parking is available on Main Street.
