Although the 19-year-old Thomas Edison only resided at 729-31 East Washington Street for a year, it was during his time here working as a telegraph key operator that he explored improvements to the telegraph. Today, the Thomas Edison House continues to support the inquisitive spirit by organizing the annual 'Invention Convention', where school children compete with their own wunderkind ideas. The 'Edison Extravaganza Evening' is another annual event that presents silent and live auctions. Have a party or group function that requires a historical inventor's living quarters (and tranquil backyard garden)? The house is available to rent for up to 50 people.
