Bell Homestead National Historic Site, Brantford, Canada

This sturdy homestead was the site of one of the most important scientific breakthroughs in history. On July 26th, 1874, the young Alexander Graham Bell sat in the dale here, in a spot he called his “dreaming place”, and pondered the quest for a “speaking telegraph”. As he stared down at the Grand River that warm summer day, inspiration struck: Bell grasped the principle on which his most famous invention, the telephone, would work. On a subsequent visit to his parents here two years later, he mounted one of the three crucial public demonstrations that proved the telephone was a practical form of communication. Bell’s invention would reshape the world. Visit Canada. Epic Canada Route © Monika Newbound
