American Whistle Factory


The only metal whistle manufacturer in the United States supplies everyone from traffic cops to school coaches to professional referees. All ages are welcome on the 45-minute guided tours (by reservation only) of the factory, about 10 miles north of the Short North arts and shopping district. Various “whistle stops” showcase how the metal is stamped, die-struck, and formed before being tumbled in a trough to remove sharp edges. The highlight? Seeing how the cork ball is inserted into the finished version—that and collecting your shiny new whistle at the end of the tour!
