Where Modern America Was Invented

Thomas Edison’s home and laboratory are a step back in time, when machines were run by belts and pulleys and music was played on phonographs.  Where to the passerby, the buildings betray little evidence of the industries they once started.  Discover where America’s greatest inventor changed our world forever. (from the Edison Historical website)

 

Come join us for a visit to Thomas Edison’s Glenmont Estate and his West Orange Laboratory on Saturday, November 23, 2019.  Please be at the lab located at 211 Main Street West Orange, NJ 07052 between 9:00 am and 9:15am in order to purchase your tickets ($15.00 each unless you have the National Parks Senior Pass – then you have free admission). At 9:30am sharp – we will then caravan to Llewellyn Park to see his home – Llewellyn Park is a gated community so we need to go together as a group I order to gain admission. At 10:00am we will have a guided tour of the house and garage, after the tour we will caravan back to the lab for a tour of the facilities. Lunch will be on your own – we can, however, decide where members of the group would like to eat and make a reservation that morning.

Please RSVP to Lucille Chabala either by phone 973-731-9133 or by email [email protected].  Space is limited, so please reserve a spot early.
