Facility:The Garibaldi-Meucci Museum
Description:This historic house is preserved as a memorial to the lives of Antonio Meucci and Giuseppe Garibaldi. Antonio Meucci, a native of Florence, Italy, lived here until his death in 1889. In 1849, while experimenting with the new phenomenon of electricity, he discovered that sound could be transmitted by electric wires. Alexander Graham Bell was then two years old. Meucci also extended refuge and sanctuary to the famous Giuseppe Garibaldi, who had been forced to flee his homeland while fighting for the unification of Italy.
