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.

4291 N. Patrick Rd, 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

Beautiful, quiet area with unoccupied house, with dozens of rust-covered bells and other farm equipment on display. Spoke to the owner who lives nearby. He gave me permission to walk the property and take photos after I explained what I was up to. He was very friendly. Please be respectful of this hidden gem.

To some of us locals, it has always been known as the Bell Farm. Back in the day, when the place was in much better condition, you could go outside on New Year's Eve and hear those bells ringing in the new year for miles around.

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.
