Welcome to Brantford
Brantford is all about cultural sites. The Six Nations territory here has been a First Nations center for centuries, and gives you a look into the culture then and now. You can trace indigenous history, see contemporary art and visit an indigenous performance space. Captain Joseph Thayendanegea Brant led the Six Nations people here from upper New York State in 1784 and you can visit his tomb at the world’s only Royal Indian Chapel. Then, for a bit more British-Canadian history, head to the former homestead of Alexander Graham Bell, who first patented the telephone.
