News from the Illinois Valley

History buffs pushing to open a Westclox Museum

Posted by wlpo on October 27, 2014

You’d be hard pressed to find anyone born and raised in the Illinois Valley who wasn’t related to someone that worked at Westclox.

Michael Wollack runs a flashlight company inside the old clock-making building in Peru. After looking at his grandparents belongings from their days at Westclox, he got concerned that history of Westclox could slip away. Wollack is now collecting anything Westclox-related for a potential museum.

If you have any Westclox history to share, call Wollack at 250-0609. There’s also a Facebook page called Westclox Museum.
