Hand crafted bells
Jun 2021 • Solo
We happened upon this place when out driving around and decided to stop. So many choices, beautiful tone and design. We bought a bell and bracket, then realized after we got home that we didn't have the bracket. I sent an email and promptly within a few days received a bracket. The tone is rich and beautiful!!

This craftsman is a “ringing” success

We had a nice drive from Southwest Harbor today to the Schoodic Peninsula about an hour’s drive from Southwest Harbor. This “crafty” family is very nice, enterprising AND the father, Richard Fisher, was raised in Cohasset, MA. We met Richard and his daughter-in-law, Liza, who also gave us a tour of the foundry
Happy and Dad☘️❤️

Must put on your list to visit

I am renting a VRBO house in Gouldsboro and visited the US Bells store right nearby. Such a crafty family! The cast iron bells, pottery, fine woodworking, and beautiful quilts—all beautifully hand made by this Maine family. I purchased the winter bell and it is hanging on the porch of my rental...so fitting! I am going back this week to get another to compliment this one! They pour the bells on Mon, Tues, and We’d at 11:30....I am hoping to be able to get over there to watch! Definitely put this on your To Do list!

We keep thinking of people we can buy bells for
Aug 2019
This place is one that we always go back to, every time we are in Maine. The bells are better than chimes and are made right here. The owner is so friendly and helpful when you ask about other places nearby. We have 2 bells ourselves & now buy them for family. The showroom has a wide selection of bells and other items such as quilts and pottery.

We visited after driving the Schoodic part of the park. Very interesting. We could not bring a bell home in our luggage but will order online.

We visited the showroom and saw the adjacent building where the actual bells are assembled. We were very impressed with how seriously they take their work. Yes, we bought bell wind-chimes.

Quality time!
Aug 2018 • Couples
My husband had bought one of U.S. Bells in Vermont years ago and wanted to see where they were actually made. His daughter in law also was there: she is a potter and creates beautiful things. Ed took the time to not only show his wares, he took Hagen through the foundry and educated him on his craft. What a lovely man. Talented and kind. I think it was the highlight of Hagen‘s visit Downeast! And yes, we bought another bell.

We often bring guests to visit the showroom and possibly share the casting if they happen to be working. We brought my sister and her husband a week ago and they certainly enjoyed the visit.

We had our "door bell" custom made there 16 years ago. The brass looks great and has weathered nicely, and the tassle hasn't hardly aged at all in that time. I've purchased a number of coat hooks to incorporate into my own custom woodworking. They're all top quality! But these are craft pieces and not inexpensive. You will love them as will your great grand children.

Hi Brett and thanks very much for your nice review! Glad you enjoyed your visit and it's great to hear stories of people's bells holding up fine after many years. I guess that's one of the good things about bronze casting- the pieces can endure through generations. Also, thanks for using our coat hooks in your wood work. Best regards from our shop!

A lil bit of Maine
Jul 2018 • Friends
First on my list of places to visit was US Bells. I fell in love with this lovely quaint family owned and operated business filled with melodious bells, pottery, quilts and craft items. Sarah Fisher gave us a tour of the iron shop... the lil bit of Maine I purchased will be admired and enjoyed for years to come!!!
