Aaron Willard

Oct 14, 1757 - May 20, 1844

Aaron Willard was an entrepreneur, an industrialist, and a designer of clocks who worked extensively at his Roxbury, Massachusetts, factory during the early years of the United States of America.
While at the family farm at Grafton, Aaron Willard developed his career conjointly with his three brothers, who became celebrated horologists too.
Both brothers moved to Roxbury, Boston, Massachusetts, where they developed one of the first modern American industries, independently from each other. Simon and Aaron Willard's clocks were the first economically accessible timepieces of the country.
