Brantford Local Community Info

The beautiful city of Brantford has a reputation of being accessible, friendly, progressive and a great place to live and visit.

Known throughout the world as the Telephone City, the place where in the summer of 1874, Alexander Graham Bell invented the telephone at his family's homestead, Brantford is a city with an illustrious history and prosperous future.

Costain and Sarah Jeannette Duncan.
