ALEXAN­DER GRA­HAM BELL NA­TIONAL HIS­TORIC SITE

Be­sot­ted by Cape Bre­ton, Alexan­der Gra­ham Bell chose to spend his last 37 sum­mers in Baddeck—ar­guably the Is­land’s pret­ti­est re­sort town. To­day it is home to an epony­mous na­tional his­toric site which spot­lights the famed in­ven­tor’s achieve­ments. On dis­play you’ll see per­sonal pho­tos and arte­facts along with in­trigu­ing mod­els of the tele­phone and many other Bell cre­ations, in­clud­ing an early air­plane, a manned kite and a full-scale hy­dro­foil boat. Spe­cial ac­tiv­i­ties, which run the gamut from kid-friendly ex­per­i­ments and kite-mak­ing ses­sions to de­tailed be­hind-the-scenes tours, draw vis­i­tors of all ages (www.parkscanada. gc.ca/alexan­der­gra­ham­bell).
