Time Travel: Antique clock returned to Bay school district
Recently, Bay Village Schools received an antique clock from Illinois resident Greg Nolan, who found the clock at an estate sale in his home state. He was told the clock came from an old Bay Village, Ohio, schoolhouse and he felt the clock should “come home.”
The district reached out to local historian Eric Eakin of the Bay Village Historical Society to see if any archives show photographs of the clock in early school buildings. Unfortunately, the clock’s history has yet to be validated, but Bay Village Schools’ Director of Teaching and Learning Char Shryock hopes to have the clock repaired and hung in the District Office.
If you have any information on the clock, please call the district office at 440-617-7300.
