In 1813, a man named Seth Thomas came to the what was then known as Plymouth Hollow to manufacture clocks. By 1856, Thomas was labeling his clocks with “Thomas Town.” On July 6,1875 Thomas Town became Thomaston in memory of Seth Thomas and the separation from Plymouth was confirmed by the State Legislature.
Many native New Yorkers or movie buffs have probably heard the famous phrase, “Meet me under the clock”; in New York, this can only be referring to the Grand Central clock adorning the top of Grand Central Terminal’s information booth located in the main concourse. Created by Seth Thomas, the clock is valued between ten and twenty million dollars, surely declaring it as Seth Thomas’ magnum opus!
Another of Thomaston’s claims to fame is its classic car yearly auto show. Sixteen years ago, the Thomaston Police Department was in search of a way to raise money for its Police Explorers program when Officer Terry Hawley came up with an idea to hold an auto show featuring classic automobiles. The department’s Main Street Summer Cruise was born and has been an annual event ever since. It was first held in the rear parking lot of the Town Hall and has grown to the entire downtown area.
