The Bevin family has been crafting quality bells for 176 years. Once one of a multitude of bell makers in America, today Bevin Brothers is the only remaining company manufacturing just bells in the United States. The Bevin family, now in its sixth generation of ownership, still oversees all operations of their business in East Hampton, Connecticut. In an era when the manufacturing of almost all American goods consumed is unfortunately located overseas, the Bevin family continues to produce the world's finest bells with a 100% customer-satisfaction guaranteed. Against all odds, the Bevins have maintained their business for nearly two centuries. They take pride in the fact that each bell they make is backed by nearly two hundred years of experience, quality and trust.
William Barton is credited with the start of East Hampton's bell making in 1808. According to Barbara Feist (a direct descendent of William Barton) as she writes in Ring Out for Belltown, "When the first bell hit the market, East Hampton was only 65 years old." She further proclaims, "East Hampton (to be) the oldest bell producer in the America.”
