Cloverdale, Indiana: House Of Bells

Bells fill the front yard -- but this place is much more than just bells. There are huge battleship chains, buckets that you can swing in, traps to catch 50-foot-tall bears, and Paul Bunyan's ax.
US Hwy 231, Cloverdale, IN
I-70 take exit 41. Head south on Hwy 231 through Cloverdale. South of the town take Hwy 42 East. Stay on Hwy 42 for five miles. There will be a 90 degree left turn in the road; to the right a much smaller road branches off (Keep an eye out so you don't miss it). Take this road to the right. The House Of Bells will be just up the road after the turn.

House Of Bells

The house at the House of Bells does look empty. There are signs saying that the property is under surveillance to prevent theft. Sad but probably needed. Bells are awesome.

There is a great diner called Cooks Corner not too far away so you can make a nice trip.

Great place - very unique! Met John the owner. Collection was started by his uncle in 1950. Never saw so many bells in one place in my life.
