On This Spot Alexander Graham Bell Burned Midnight Oil At the Thomas Sanders home in Salem, Professor Bell lived several years. By day he taught in Boston; by night he instructed the Sanders boy, born deaf, and worked on experiments leading to his telephone. The house no longer stands. On its site, the YMCA exhibits replicas of Bell's original instruments.
