Thomas Edison House
Although the 19-year-old Thomas Edison only resided at 729-31 East Washington Street for a year, it was during his time here working as a telegraph key operator that he explored improvements to the telegraph. Today, the Thomas Edison house continues to support the inquisitive spirit by organizing the annual Invention Convention, where school children compete with their own inventions. Another annual event takes place with the Edison Extravaganza evening with silent and live auctions. Have a party or group function that requires a historical inventor's living quarters (and tranquil backyard garden)? The house is available to rent for up to 50 people.
This was a really nice representation of the accomplishments of the life of Thomas Edison. Because it was so small, it was very child friendly and that was important with 4 little kids. We went over Edison's Birthday last year, the staff was very friendly and informative (and tolerant of kid questions).
