History of the Grandfather's Clock located in Littleton Regional Healthcare's Lobby

Grandfather's Clock located in Littleton Regional Healthcare's Lobby

The stately grandfather's clock that is located in the main lobby at Littleton Regional Hospital was presented to the Hospital in the year 1913. However, this clock was constructed some time during the 19th century.

The two brass plaques affixed to the front of the clock state that the Littleton Drama Club donated the clock to the Cohashauke Club in 1898, and that the Cohashauke Club gave the clock to Littleton Regional Hospital in 1913.

The Cohashauke Club was a social order in Littleton, NH, that formed in 1892 and incorporated in 1897. The idea for this club came about as a result of a few young men who desired a place where they could meet their friends and find recreation. Originally located in a few rooms in the Littleton Opera Block, the club relocated to more spacious quarters in February of 1897 to Parker's Block on Main Street, Littleton. In its prime, the club had about ninety active and nearly 30 associate members.
