Alexander Graham Bell died in Baddeck. “Bell died of complications arising from diabetes . . . at his
private estate, Beinn Bhreagh, Nova Scotia, at age 75 . . . [He] was buried atop Beinn Bhreagh mountain, where he had resided increasingly for the last 35 years of his life, overlooking Bras d’Or Lake. He was survived by his wife Mabel, his two daughters, Elsie May and Marian, and nine of his grandchildren.” The Bell family had first come to summer at Baddeck in 1885 and later built their residence there, where Bell researched and conducted scientific experiments.
