Heritage

HERITAGE INSTRUMENTS

As the only traditional bell foundry in the United States, we carry on the tradition and quality of our founding craftsmen.

Bells last for centuries.  Because of this, it is not uncommon that we service bells and bell installations that may be over one hundred years old. Some of our work has even been carried out on bells that date back to the beginning of the seventeenth century! Because of this very special element of our work, we take careful pride in addressing every aspect of conservation for bells that predate the twentieth century. Despite the age of some of the installations that we have serviced, bells can usually be brought back to life with a special attention to timber frame support and replacement of custom manufactured bell fittings. Sometimes the work can be accomplished within the tower. Other times, the bells may need to be removed from the tower and brought back to our works for a complete servicing.

If you are ready to take the next step in restoring, maintaining, or expanding the heritage instrument in your tower please reach out to us.  We would be honored to be a part of the history of your bells.

Need structural maintenance and repair?  We are licensed and insured for general tower contracting.
