This distinctive red, multi-gabled mansion was named "Glenmont." As you might expect, Edison's home was equipped with the best that technology had to offer in those days. Central heating, hot and cold indoor running water, indoor flush toilets, and a refrigerator room in the kitchen were some of the luxuries that this amazing and complicated inventor had installed. There were also 23 fireplaces which were unnecessary because of the excellent central heating - their purpose was purely aesthetic rather than functional. The home has been preserved much the way it was when Edison lived there, but it's a marvel of ingenuity and comfort even by today's standards. (Submitted by G-Dawg H)
