VA, Colonial Beach Alexander Graham Bell House
May 7, 2008
|From time to time in my travels you run across somebody who seems to love what they are doing in life. Today I visited The Bell House in Colonial Beach, VA. Home is now owned by one Anne Bolin who is a delight to talk to and has done some research on A G Bell and the Bell family.
Jack Cornette and I knocked on the door and asked if we could look around and Ms Bolin was very helpful in sharing her knowledge of A G Bell. It was a delight to meet her and see this home. Best of luck Anne Bolin and thanks for the tour.
FROM BROCHURE BELL HOUSE
Aptly named for its well known owner, The Bell House is listed on the National Register of Historic
Places and is a Virginia Historic Landmark.
The home was built in 1883 by Colonel J.O.P. Burnside, son of Civil War General Ambrose Burnside.
The Colonel lost the house to the U. S. Government in a lawsuit over pay irregularities in the Union Army accounts.
Owned next by Alexander Graham Bell’s father and then Alexander himself, the home overlooks a wide expanse of the Potomac River.
Step back in time and enjoy the historical ambiance of the house and the hospitality of your innkeeper, Anne Bolin. Every detail of the home reflects the quality and workmanship of a bygone era … beautifully illustrated by original hardwood flooring, stained glass windows, and scenic balconies.
