This weekend my husband and I went to Thomas Edison’s estate Glenmont in West Orange, NJ. This was not his home when he invented electricity, but a massive laboratory sits at the bottom of the hill. The laboratory will reopen from renovations fall 2009. Here are some highlights of the afternoon, as well as a slide show of all our pictures at the end of the post.
Our picture just before the tour started.

Edison’s Laboratory. We couldn’t go inside because of renovations, but it opens again in the Fall 2009.
Thomas Edison and his wife are both buried on the property.
To see other interesting parts of our visit (including a portrait of the Lord Kelvin), check out this slide show.
