The inventive genius of Edison is evident throughout his 14 acre riverfront estate. His botanical gardens reflect his love of exotic foliage and search for useful materials. A 9,000 square foot museum houses memorabilia related to Edison’s life. Also on display is his unique Model T Ford, a prototype presented to him by his friend, Henry Ford.
