The Town for Long Distance Calls Experts
We walked on the Paris, Ontario, main street and suddenly found this:
Can you imagine? The first Long-Distance telephone call!
Alexander Graham Bell worked on his famous invention at his family’s home at Brantford. He made the world’s first long-distance phone call from a shop in the village of Paris to the Homestead on August 10, 1876.

By the way, the shop still exists today in the same building.
