Completed in 1832, the Harmonist Church at Economy had a clock with a single hand that told the hour, which people could see it from all over town and the surrounding fields surrounding the town. Still in use, St. John's Lutheran Church still has the original two bells of the Harmony Society and the original clock and clockworks. Courtesy of Old Economy Village
