Wife and I visited here on 7/25/17. I sure most of you did not know this part of Edison's history. Lots of parking and easy access. Just across the street from the river walk.

Thomas Edison lived in Port Huron as a boy before he became a famous inventor. He was known to have sold papers on the train running between Port Huron and Detroit. The museum has similar rail cars on display.
