Take a journey through more than one hundred years of Bell Homestead history. Built in 1858, this sturdy homestead became the first Canadian residence for Alexander Graham Bell and his parents in 1870. Here, he discovered the fundamental principle upon which his most famous invention – the telephone – would work. This presentation speaks about the eleven years that the Bells called Brantford home, as well as the site’s evolution as a National Historic Site, through great stories and photographs.
Presented as part of the Retired Teachers of Ontario Talk Series in partnership with the Brantford Public Library
