12-08-2020

(WorldKings.org) From the time he was in grade school, Roy Fuston had a knack for making things tick. Fellow students would bring clocks and watches, and teachers allowed the young man to make repairs to the spring-driven time pieces during study hall.

Born in 1928 in Warren County, when Roy Fuston graduated from high school, he opened his own clock repair business in Woodbury, and later expanded his shop to include jewelry.

At the time of his death in 2005, Fuston’s collection of clocks numbered 600. His son, Steve Fuston, and wife, Kathy, now care for the treasure.

There is a wide variety of crafted timepieces including tall case, mantel, banjo, steeple, and beehive clocks.

There is also special clock suchs as one large hanging clock made by a clockmaker named Pollhans for his bride. “Since 1840, we are the third family to own the clock,” Kathie commented.
