THE AMERICAN BELL ASSOCIATION® was organized in 1940 for educational and scientific purposes related to the collection, study, preservation, restoration and research of all kinds of bells. We are an all-volunteer, 501(c)(4) not-for-profit organization.
Many people find our web site via a search for answers to their questions about bells. Others are bell collectors who have recently heard there is an organization especially for them and want to learn more about their bells.
