Kites of the World
New exhibit: Kites of the World© Parks Canada
Just over a century ago, Alexander Graham Bell and his wife Mabel were accompanied by their friends Casey and Kathleen Baldwin on a twelve-month trip around the world. Departing from Canada on May 10, 1910, this voyage took them to destinations including Hawaii, Fiji, Australia, China, India, Japan and Europe, culminating in their return to Washington, D.C. on May 8, 1911.
Alexander Graham Bell National Historic Site is proud to present a new exhibit, Kites of the World, featuring kites illustrating several of the popular styles which Dr. Bell might have encountered on his journey across the globe.
