Thomas Edison's House, 1850's
The Thomas Alva Edison museum house, which was acquired in 1990 by Historic Homes Foundation, Inc., is a small, simple cottage where Thomas Edison rented a single room during part of the one and one-half years he worked in Louisville as a telegrapher after the Civil War. Built in the 1850s, the cottage is one of the few remaining shotgun duplexes in Louisville. Many artifacts of Edison's era can be viewed, some with "hands-on" experience.
Located at 729-31 East Washington Street.
