Parc historique national Alexander Graham Bell

The Park commemorates the humanitarian and scientific achievements of Alexander Graham Bell (1847-1922) and his associates
Frederick W. Baldwin · John A.D. McCurdy · Glenn H. Curtiss · Thomas E. Selfridge

Most of the artifacts are from the original Alexander Graham Bell collection preserved in the Kite House at Beinn Bhreagh. They were donated by the daughters of Dr. Bell: Mrs David Fairchild and Mrs. Gilbert Grosvenor in 1955. The Bell descendants have provided further invaluable contributions, notably in 1958 and 1976.
In honour of Dr. Bell, its second President, the National Geographic Society, Washington, D.C., U.S.A., presented enlargements of his life and work at Baddeck, Nova Scotia.
The original building which opened in 1956 was erected on land donated by the Province of Nova Scotia and on 19 August 1978 this expanded Complex was officially opened to the public.
The people of Canada gratefully acknowledge these gifts.
