Bell Homestead

Photos from our visit to the Bell Homestead in Brantford, ON. Alexander Graham Bell's parents owned this home and the surrounding farm. Here, in 1874, Bell first thought of the principle that would make the telephone a reality. Two years later, Bell made the first "long distance" telephone call from a telegraph office a few miles away to his parents' home.
