Re: Re: Please help identify-
National Bell Foundry Co was in Cincinnati and began operation in the late 1800’s. During that period and into the early 20th century church and school construction in the US was booming and the market for affordable bells was brisk. Most of the steel bell foundries were out of business by the 1920’s. Bells don’t wear out and by that time most buildings and farms that needed a bell had one.
