Craftsmanship and artistry come together

Before the store opened in 1974, owners Valentino (Val) and Glenda Marchesoni’s shared passion for quality clocks was revealed quite by surprise.

Val, an electrical engineer who loves mechanics, and Glenda, a former history teacher who has an eye for beauty, gave each other life-changing presents for the holidays. Val had designed and handcrafted an extraordinary wall clock for Glenda. She had picked out something memorable for him as well. As you can guess, she had bought a beautiful clock.

It didn’t take long—and a business was born.

The family clock business is now approaching 40 years in the Dallas area and in addition to clocks, also specializes in music boxes and other extraordinary gifts.

Today, one of Val and Glenda’s sons, Nicholas, shares the family infatuation with clocks and has become an important contributor to the overall Heritage House experience. He is not only adept at clock repair but adds a youthful perspective to buying merchandise, ensuring that there is always something for everyone.

If you love beautiful things and enjoy the idea of real craftsmanship and fine engineering you’ll be right at home at Heritage House. But be warned, you may find yourself smiling just a bit more than you had expected and staying in the store a little longer than you had planned.

Don’t worry, Val and Glenda will completely understand.
