The World's Only Traveling
On-Site Casting of a Bronze Bell in Your Community
The Bell Foundry on Wheels was originally designed and built by Verdin to help Ohio celebrate its bicentennial. For three years the foundry traveled throughout Ohio, casting bronze bells for each of the state's 88 counties in celebration of the bicentennial. To date, the Bell Foundry on Wheels has cast over 100 bronze bells for communities and businesses across the country. Now, the Bell Foundry on Wheels is available to cast a bell in your community or business. The two-day bell casting event is unique, fun, and interactive—allowing the entire community to be involved and enhancing the dedication of your bell or bell tower.
Experience Verdin's One-of-a-Kind Event
The community will take part in an ‘ingot brigade,’ loading 500 pounds of bronze ingots into the 2200 degree furnace. The bell will be poured, cast, and dedicated on site. Using the one-of-a-kind on-site casting process, the Verdin Bell Foundry on Wheels enables the entire community to help create the custom bronze bell, and to experience the casting of the bell.
