Wednesday September 12, 2018
7:00 p.m. start

On Wednesday, September 12th, WHAM will host the Waterford and Townsend Historical Society in our gallery for a lecture by Bell Homestead curator Brian Wood. Wood will speak on Dr. Bell, his history in the area, and the invention of the telephone. He’ll also bring examples of Dr. Bell’s early phones!

The talk coincides with a new exhibit at the museum, focusing on the Waterford telephone factory, and showcasing the three different telephone styles in their collection (including some donated by the WTHS).
