The Italian patriot Guiseppe Garibaldi came here to the home of his friend, inventor Antonio Meucci, after fighting unsuccessfully for Italy’s independence in 1849. Meucci, who is buried here, claimed to have invented the telephone in 1841, thirty-five years before Alexander Graham Bell took credit for the same thing. Meuccci’s wife had thrown away all the evidence, and he could never prove his accomplishment in court.
