Please join the Gray Historical Society on Sunday, September 26 at 4 p.m. to celebrate the end of the Pennell Clock Face project. We gather to applaud the vision of Don Whitney and efforts of Doug Webster, Jim Hall, the Town of Gray, and numerous financial supporters whose dedication helped to bring this vision to reality.
The sole remaining Pennell clock face has been returned to the Pennell building after being taken down and stored during the clock restoration of 1992. After a long and well-deserved rest, the face will once again keep time, this time from inside the Pennell building. Gray Historical Society member and Pennell alumni, Don Whitney [1943-2020], led the effort to preserve and showcase the only surviving clock face. Doug Webster, a student of the workings of the clock and largely responsible for the historic preservation of the clock and Pennell itself, assisted Don in the planning and execution of mounting and mechanizing the clock face.
