the Big Hackberry Site. This site, located inside of T.O. Fuller State Park and less than a mile away from Chucalissa itself, was the site of a small, predominantly African-American farmstead throughout the 1920s and 1930s. Among the many types of artifacts found at this site, some of the most interesting are the household objects made from metal. the object pictured here once belonged to a mechanical clock. Despite the overall wear to the mechanism and the fact that it is clearly only part of the original clock, the teeth on all three of the gears remain in remarkably good condition, and in fact the large gear on the concave side of the mechanism can still be spun on its post!
