The city of Brantford
Brantford is a city in southwestern Ontario, situated on the picturesque Grand River.
Brantford has direct access to Hwy. 403 which connects it to Woodstock in the west and Hamilton in the east; Highway 24 connects it to Cambridge to the north and Simcoe to the south.
It is a vibrant community and its central location makes it an ideal place to live, work, play and visit.
Brantford is sometimes known as the "Telephone City", as here was the first North American home of Professor Alexander Melville Bell and his family, including his last surviving son, scientist Alexander Graham Bell. The evolution of the telephone is shown in the Bell Homestead National Historic Site.
Other local museums include the Brant Museum and Archives, Canadian Military Heritage Museum and the Personal Computer Museum.
Brantford Public Library's central branch is situated downtown on Colborne Street. In 2000, the library was the first in North America to join the UNESCO model library network.
