Bell Homestead Photo Tour
Washing Machine, Bell Homestead
The Bell family was wealthy enough to be able to afford a washing machine as well as china, silver and acreage. Visitors can see it on the back porch of the Bell Homestead. Interestingly, the Bell home is no longer in its original location. It was moved closer to Tutela Heights Road in 1935 because erosion from the Grand River, which runs behind the Homestead, was threatening the structure.
