Thomas Edison NHP: Glenmont Virtual Tour

Welcome back to National Parks and other public lands with T!

Glenmont Virtual Tour

Glenmont was Edison’s mansion, about a mile away from the labs and factories in West Orange.  It is on 13 acres on a hill in Llewellyn Park, which was America’s first planned residential community. To take a tour of the house, you must go to the Visitor Center on Main Street and get a ticket. Photography isn’t allowed inside the mansion, but you can see what I saw on my visit through the videos below. In the first video, Ranger Karen gives a one-minute overview of the park unit. In the second video, tour the entire estate and hear the remarkable stories, set to old-time phonograph music.
