John J. Snyder Jr. collected a hall-of-fame lineup of tall case clocks in his day. The works of John Fisher, Godfrey Lenhart and Jacob Hostetter, all clockmakers with York County connections, are part of that collection. Now, 14 grandfather clocks from the Snyder collection are on display at the York County Heritage Trust, 250 E. Market St. a York, Pa., Daily Record story on the exhibit noted that many dealers collect 10 to 20 such clocks. Snyder collected hundreds. The clocks are works of art and loaded with history. ‘A simple design can tell you a lot,’ the Trust’s Dan Roe told the YDR. This clock’s face bears hand-painted birds. It comes from the hands of another York County hall-of-fame craftsman and inventor Jonathan Jessop.
