Known as "Telephone City" as this is where Alexander Bell invented the telephone, Brantford is a city in the southwestern part of Ontario. Named after an important Mohawk chief during the American Revolutionary War, Joseph Brant. Brantford is home to the largest aboriginal settlement in Ontario, a casino that boasts of having over 500 slot machines, endless walking and hiking trails that are a part of the Trans Canada Trail system and the Woodland Cultural Center that is a First Nations' educational and cultural center. Apparently the council does not like historical buildings as in 2010 it demolished 41 of them in the downtown area that was one of the longest blocks of pre-Confederation architecture in Canada, amidst the protest cries of the local heritage preservation community.
For the outdoor enthusiast, Brantford is a dreamland, as it sits on the Grand River where you can find more than 80 species of fish to hook on line if you like. You can snake around rapids in canoes or kayaks, with or without a guide. The Trans Canada Trails system will give your legs a workout through spectacular wooded trails where you can take time out to admire stunning vistas over the Grand River. If you want to curl up in a sleeping bag and burn your dinner on an open wood fire, you can camp out in the Brant Park Conservation Area.
The Bell Homestead National Historic Site, one of Ontario's oldest historic home museums, is a particular draw card for tourists as you can get inside the brain of a young Alexander Bell. There is an historic vaudeville theater, The Sanderson Center for the Performing Arts, for the arty ones to catch a live show whilst the Glenhyrst Art Gallery has art exhibitions to gawk at. For the historian there is the Chapel of the Mohawks, the oldest Protestant Church in Ontario built in 1785 and symbolic for the link between the Six Nations People and the Crown of England. You can also take in some local culture at the Kanata Village, a 17th century Iroquoian village and Interpretive Center, complete with a longhouse and a palisade.
