History[ edit ] The Bell Homestead period began with the arrival of the Bell family in the summer of from their Hovey and beard case Scotland, where two of their sons had died of tuberculosis and their middle son, Alexander Graham Bellwas additionally stricken and being consumed by disease.
The Bell Homestead complex in the present day consists of several buildings with their own origins. The principal building at the site is Alexander Melville Bell's farmhouse, Melville House, along with its related greenhouse conservatory, outbuildings and fruit orchard.
The farmhouse and its farmland were acquired for preservation as a museum in The Henderson Home, which had served as Canada's first telephone business office in downtown Brantford, was later moved to the site in and renovated extensively in to convert it into a separate telephone museum under the principal sponsorship of the county's largest telephone carrier, Bell Canada.
As well, a tea housea visitor reception centre with a mini audio-video theatre and related facilities were also added to the homestead to accommodate visitors and tour groups.
Alexander Melville Bell and Alexander Graham Bell Professor Alexander Melville Bella Scottish-born British authority Hovey and beard case speech and elocution, immigrated to Canada by steamship in July with his family and daughter-in-law, who had been widowed by the death of Bell's eldest son from tuberculosis in May of that year.
The family's youngest son Edward had similarly died of tuberculosis three years earlier, and during their departure from the British Isles their middle son Alexander Graham now appeared to be faltering from the same disease. Henderson was a Baptist minister and close family friend who likely went to school with Melville in Scotland, and who had previously invited the Bell family to immigrate to Canada.
At the time of the Bell family's departure from the UK, Alexander Graham's health was threateningly poor, with "a chest condition The city's largest newspaper, the Brantford Expositorsoon announced the Bell family's arrival, writing that it was " Pleasant road some two miles from Brantford".
I came to Brantford in to die; I was given six months lease of life, but I am glad to be alive today As I look back upon it, visions come to me of the Grand River and of Tutela Heights and my dreaming place upon the heights where visions of the telephone came to my mind.
He would relax, think, and " For his work Alexander Graham earned the tribe's friendship and was awarded the title of Honorary Chief and participated in a ceremony where he donned a Mohawk headdress and performed traditional dances. Thereafter Bell would break into a Mohawk war dance if he became intensely excited.
Over the next several years the younger Bell would live and work in the Boston area during the school year, and then return to his parents' homestead during the summer months to rest with his family and conduct further telegraphic, and later, telephonic research work.
During his summer vacation at the Homestead inAlexander Graham continued to contemplate electrical sound reproduction while viewing the undulating surface of the Grand River from his "dreaming place".
He postulated that "it would be possible to transmit sounds of any sort" by the continuous variation of the intensity of the electric current. This method of sound energy to electrical signal transduction was fundamentally different from the on-or-off transmission methods used by other telephone experimenters.
His record of a discussion with his father in their home's living room, wrote "If I could vary the intensity of the electric current in exact proportion to the variation of the air density in the production of words, I would be able to transmit speech by telegraph" using the telephone's technical analog, the telegraph, as the former name had not yet been adapted.
Later that year, in August, Bell made the first successful voice transmission of any notable distance, between Brantford and Paris Ontario. Alexander Graham Bell, a young teacher of the deaf, spent a few weeks of leisurely contemplation and invented the telephone.
In Alexander Graham referred to it saying "The instrument, just as you see it here, was invented in the summer ofduring a visit I paid to my father and mother in Brantford The third and most important test was the world's first true long distance call, placed between Brantford and Paris, Ontario on 10 August In Paris, news of Bell's test quickly drew crowds of onlookers who witnessed Melville's voice emanating from the crude metal box.
Nevertheless Alexander Graham much later declared that this was the first one-way long distance call "of several miles", but noted it was "the first transmission at a distance, but it was not the first reciprocal conversation over a line. That was held in Boston on 9 October Wallis Ellis store in the neighbouring community of Mount Pleasant  listened to his uncle's voice emanating from his receiver housed in a metal box.
Initially David Bell's voice couldn't be heard distinctly as " However, Walter Griffin, the Dominion Telegraph manager, decided to attach the telegraph line to a battery to see if it would improve the transmission, which it did, and "the voices then came in distinctly. McIntyre and Thomas Brooks,  he tacked the stovepipe wire some metres a half mile along the top of fence posts from his parent's home to a junction point on the Mount Pleasant telegraph line, which joined that community to the Dominion Telegraph office in Brantford.
Melville House was the name given to his home by the elder Bell, and which was used on the letterhead of his stationery, reading in full: Its architectural features included pine and wood pegged floors, walnut window trims, a main floor ceiling over three metres 10 feet in height, a low-pitched gabled roof,  a gingerbread trim-styled front veranda as well as a bathtub and shower equipped washroom fitted to an attic or ceiling level rainfall cistern —installed by the younger Bell at a time when few homes in the region had any fixed bathtubs at all.
Its shower and oversized bathtub likely chosen for the younger Alexander's large frame drew hot and cold water from piping leading to both a ceiling level cistern and to a hot water heater in the basement.
In Melville House became a museum dedicated to the Bell family, including both Melville and Alexander, and to Alexander Graham's invention of the telephone there in July Further donations from Bell family descendants also included books, china, paintings,   a silver tea service that was a wedding gift to Alexander Graham and his bride Mabel Bella gold candy dish that was a wedding present to the elder Bells, Melville's walnut shaving stand and Mabel's favourite wing chair.
One important donated item is the original melodeon serial number of the George A. Prince Company given to the Homestead museum by the granddaughter of Jenny Cowherd who later became Mrs.
Jenny's father was Thomas Cowherdwhose hardware store supplied stovepipe wire to Graham Bell, and her brother was James, who built almost 2, telephones for Melville's telephone company and for the Bell Telephone Company of Canada.
Jenny also played the melodeon and sang for at least one of Alexander Graham's telephone demonstrations. Although the house is kept as a historic site, it has a comfortable look of habitation about it. Freshly pressed, embroidered linens hang on the side of the bathtub, a basket of needlework waits to be completed and clothes hang in the bedrooms.
Amidst all these homey little touches, are some of the Bell family's possessions, which serve as a clue to the kind of clever, inventive mind that thrived in these surroundings.List of American military personnel killed in Operation Iraqi Freedom, including profiles, photos, and messages for their families.

Hovey and Beard Company Case The Hovey and Beard Company manufactures a variety of wooden toys, including animals, pull toys, and the like.
The toys were manufactured by a transformation process that began in the wood room. There, toys were cut, sanded, and partially assembled.
Then the toys were dipped into shellac and sent to the painting room%(2). The Hovey and Beard Company Case presents us with a job design of a painting process which demonstrates errors in the design of the job by engineers which resulted into inevitable problems at work (John, Robert and Michael, ).
