Former Cherokee Chief Chad Smith donated the clock to Gates Rubber Company, in honor of his father, who was a long time employee of Gates. The Gates Rubber Company gave the clock to Ann Cherry and now she has donated it to the Talbot Library & Museum.
We are so grateful to Mrs. Cherry for generously donating the clock for the benefit of visitors at the Talbot Library and Museum. The clock is hanging near the entry way. It is a practical representation of Cherokee culture and looks great in our library!
