In celebration of the 175 years since Alexander Graham Bell’s birth and the 100 years since his death, the site pays tribute to his many inventions and innovations, as well as the lasting legacy that he and Mabel left behind in the community of Baddeck. Through special events, exhibits, and programming, visitors are invited to embrace their own spirit of innovation, curiosity, and creativity.
