Clock on the steeple of the Congregational \\\"Seaman\\\'s\\\", 26 Middle Street, Eastport, Maine. Church and clock are owned by the Tides Institute & Museum of Art. Clock was made by George Holbrook. From: http://homepages.sover.net/~donnl/mainemakers.html HOLBROOK, Georgexxxix Eastport 1767-1846 xxxix. Smith in 24, Pg. 473, names Holbrook as the maker of the tower clock in the Eastport Congregational Church. No place, no date. Drepperd in 8, Pg. 236, lists a George H. Holbrook as in Brookfield and Medway, MA (1800\\\'s). Palmer in 18, Pg. 213, lists a Major George Holbrook in Wrentham, MA. He is therein recorded as a bell founder and maker of clocks placed in various meeting houses. He therefore could be a maker of either gallery or tower clocks, but there is no specific mention of tower clocks by him. Frederick Shelley and Carroll Morse (pers. coms.) affirm that Major George Holbrook was indeed the maker of this clock. 23. SMITH, Charles W..
