Official Bell Homestead NHS Website, City of Brantford

A Century Later 

Since 1910, the Bell’s home has welcomed visitors from all parts of the world.

Carefully restored as it was in the Bell’s day and including an extensive collection of original Bell family furnishings, paintings, china, silver, and books, the Homestead affords its guests the opportunity to experience the lifestyle led by this conservative Scottish and English family.

Visitors of all ages are provided with insight into how a teacher of the deaf came to invent the telephone in the midst of a fast changing late-Victorian society and how that technology remains an integral part of our modern world.
