International Bell Museum

The owner, Winston H. Jones, died on August 14, 2006. His bells are being donated to his alma mater, Hastings College. However, he was still in good enough health on the 4th of July, 2006 to have all his bells rung (!!!) with the help of neighbors,volunteers and friends. The tradition started with a request from President John F. Kennedy.

International Bell Museum

This rustic mountain mansion designed in 1920 by Arthur H. Jones houses a great collection of over 6,000 bells inside. Jones's son Winston began collecting them in 1925, and the collection includes school bells, mine warning bells, hotel desk bells, locomotive bells, and Molly Brown's Chinese dinner gong. The place has been a museum since 1957 and is open by appointment.
