Harvest Home

Date: Sat, Sep 17 2016

Family fun was sure a part of Alexander Graham Bell’s life! Help us continue to celebrate the tradition of Harvest Home with festivities including children’s entertainment. In the early 1900s, this event was held at the Bell Family Estate, Beinn Bhreagh, for people from the estate and the village. Now you can celebrate with us at the Alexander Graham Bell National Historic Site. From 9 am to 5 pm. General admission fees apply.
