Beinn Bhreagh Bell estate

The Bell estate is located in Nova Scotia. He called it Beinn Bhreagh (pronounced ban vreeah) which means "beautiful mountain" in Gaelic. Their home which looked like a castle had 37 rooms. The Bells would spend thirty-six years here, dividing their time between Washington D.C. and Canada. Bell had become a U.S. citizen, but he loved Canada. The land around Baddeck was very similar to his native Scotland. In fact the word Nova Scotia means "New Scotland". Many Scottish people live there.
