Additional Details:
Thomas Edison's bachelor assistants lived here while working on such inventions as the phonograph, telephone transmitter, and incandescent lamp. To celebrate New year's Eve 1879, they wired the house, their laboratory and the street between, making this the world's first electrically lighted home. It was moved to Greenfield Village from Menlo Park, N. J.
