National Park Tour - Thomas Edison Park
How many people knew that Thomas Edison also invented a motion picture camera? Now he wasn't the only one playing with this technology. He had an entire factory dedicated to the phonograph and making the parts for production. We had the opportunity to visit his lab and factory in West Orange, NJ, The Edison National Park.
I HIGHLY recommend a visit to the Edison National Park if you are in the area. The staff was so nice and it was very interesting to visit. We saw all kinds of neat things. We didn't get a chance to visit his home while we were there because it is only open certain days of the week. So make sure to check out the days the Home is open also. This was definitely a fun history day.
