Hello, I recently came across 3 bells. They are stamped Hillsboro. I cannot find a date. The bells look in pretty bad shape because they have been in the weather for many years. They were found at a old cabin site and the cabin is at least 70 years old. Can anyone tell me about these bells, history, value, restoration cost?
You don’t describe the bells, size, # on yoke, steel vs bronze, etc. Most Hillsboro, OH bells were C.S.Church Bells that were made of cast steel alloy. There is information about C. S. Church Bell Foundry elsewhere in this web site that will give you information about the founder.
