Mission Statement

The mission of Thomas Edison House is to educate the public about Thomas Edison's achievements in science and technology. We provide programming that inspires creativity through the exploration of history, science and communication.

Description

Just after the Civil War, Thomas Edison rented a room in this building during part of the 1 1/2 years he worked in Louisville as a telegrapher for Western Union. Built in the 1850s, the structure is one of the few remaining shotgun duplexes in the area. On exhibit are many of Edison's inventions, including cylinder and disc phonographs, incandescent light bulbs and motion picture artifacts.
