Thomas Edison knew how to make an impression. He had his office built from brick so people would think he was running a strong, profitable business.

Thomas Edison needed people with a variety of talents to keep his "invention factory" running.
Thomas Edison's office staff on the first floor of this building took care of business issues such as accounting and correspondence. They worked alongside employees who dealt with all the reporters who visited. Others created drawings for Edison's patents. Edison and his personal secretary kept an office in the research library on the second floor.
Built in 1929 in Greenfield Village, Replica of original office and library.
