In 1886 Thomas Edison bought Glenmont as a gift for his bride, Mina Miller. After moving in, Edison said that the 23-room Victorian mansion was "a great deal too nice for me, but it isn't half nice enough for my little wife."

The Edisons and their children often used the grounds for sports and games, to entertain visitors, and to relax. During your visit, take time to explore some of Glenmont's 13½ acres and enjoy the estate that Thomas Edison called home for 44 years.
