This laundry yard was often filled with clothes hung out to dry. Inside the house domestic servants cooked, cleaned, and tended to the family's needs. Mina Edison supervised a staff that included a cook, governess, personal maid, kitchen maid, chauffeur, and gardener. Female domestics lived on Glenmont's third floor while the men were housed in quarters in the garage, barn and greenhouse.

The semi-circular drive around the laundry yard leads to Glenmont's servants' entrance and kitchen where deliverymen brought ice, food, and other supplies. When the Edisons hosted formal dinners, local employment agencies provided waiters, waitresses, and additional temporary staff.
