Edison Birthplace Museum

Thursday, August 25th, 2005 by | Filed Under: Cool Sites

As an Ohioan, I have the delight of living near Thomas Edison’s Birthplace. In fact it’s about a 45 minute drive from where I live if get on the turnpike. And yes, I have been there and it’s pretty neat.

“Thomas Alva Edison, inventor of the phonograph, the incandescent light bulb, and many other devices that make our lives fuller and simpler, was born in Milan, Ohio, in 1847. The Edison Birthplace Museum features a collection of rare Edisonia, including examples of many of Edison’s early inventions, documents, and family mementos.”
