Posted by Edison Ford Winter Estates On December 21st


Holiday Wagon Rides at the Edison & Ford Winter Estates depart from the historic Ford Estate and tour the nearby old Edison Park neighborhood during the annual Edison & Ford Holiday Nights event. From December 21 – December 23 visitors can enjoy a wagon ride with Santa Claus and December 26 & 27 guests can ride with Thomas and Mina Edison. The cost is $5 for adults and $3 per children ages 12 and under. Visitors will be delighted with the meandering tour of the old neighborhood with the two stately French horses.

    Which item in the Edison lab diorama was made by Edison himself? I read about it on the placard but never found out the answer.

    There is a small piece of rubber from the botanical lab on one of the tables in the diorama. Thanks for your question and thank you for visiting! We hope you enjoyed it.
