Alexander Graham Bell invented the telephone near Brantford, Ontario, a city not far from where I live. It’s an interesting day trip to visit the Bell Homestead, one of Ontario’s oldest historic home museums, an educational experience for my grandson.
Although Mr. Bell invented the telephone in 1874 in Brantford by the Grand River, he was born in Scotland and his family moved to Canada when he was 23 years old.
This is a monumental place when you think of the significance of this invention, one of the most important scientific inventions in history! The first long distance phone call was made from Brantford to Paris (that is Paris, Ontario).
Take a look inside …
I used to spend hours on the phone, now I spend hours blogging.
A perfect location for a photoshoot …
A lovely afternoon in the countryside, this was a wonderful science, history, geography and biography lesson for my grandson. 🙂
Are there any interesting historical sites in your area?
