The Edison Estate

Thomas Edison was an annual visitor to the gulf coast of Florida long before it was popular. He was quite a workaholic and so it was natural for him to build a replica of his New Jersey laboratory right on the grounds as well, so that he would put his time to the most productive. That nineteenth century sense of duty!

    I, too, enjoyed visiting the Edison/Ford complex. Even though it is a tourist attraction, it is nice for the community to save such an important part of our past.
