Bells from Connecticut
December 23, 2010 11:26 AM   Subscribe

Connecticut was once the home of the national bell business, with more than 30 bell foundries based in East Hampton alone. Now a lone survivor, Bevin Brothers Manufacturing, is thriving there, manufacturing everything from cow bells with college logos for the football season to traditional sleigh and dinner bells.

Can I say, "Keep them in business - We need more cow bell"? Haha.

Anything to keep CT going, really.

This is as good a place as any to note this German radio documentary about the bells in Europe melted down by the Nazis for ammunition during WWII.
