Adelaide Hunter Hoodless Homestead

In 1910, the house and surrounding lands became a memorial to Alexander Graham Bell’s achievements in telephone history and doors were opened to the general public. Restoration and an extensive collection of Bell family heirlooms have revived the home’s 1870s appearance. Visit and take a glimpse into the lifestyle led by this conservative, upper-middle class family.
