Although I’m more of a Nikola Tesla fan, I’ll tell you a little bit about the Thomas Edison Memorial Tower (which also includes the Menlo Park Museum) in Edison, New Jersey. Built in 1938, the tower marks the site of Edison’s greatest triumph, specifically the light bulb, which he unveiled to the public in December of 1879. That exact spot is marked by a 118-foot-tall art deco tower topped with what is probably the World’s Largest Light Bulb. If you find a light bulb that is higher than 14 feet tall and weighs more than eight tons, let me know. The tower’s giant light bulb was switched off for five years because it desperately needed restoration work. When the big bulb was switched back on, it was lit by LEDs and not Edison’s incandescent light bulbs. Oh, and if you’re wondering what happened to Edison’s actual workshop, well, Henry Ford “stole” it for his outdoor living history museum Greenfield Village in Dearborn, Michigan.
