Small but powerful. The 9 staff at American Whistle Corp make over a million whistles per year! Book the tour to get your reservation, $4 entrance fee, whistle at the end. Also seen in "how's it's made"

The American Whistle Company was a great place for a group tour. We saw these American Classic Whistles proudly being made in the USA. At the end of our group tour, each person received a whistle.
