Edison National Historic Site, NJBuilding 5, the largest of the laboratory buildings, extends 250 feet along Lakeside Avenue. Henry Hudson Holly, architect of Thomas Edison's home, planned this single, three-story building. But Holly's building proved too small for Edison's plans and four one-story structures were built with the main building in 1887. To an Edison associate, the complex was like "Heaven . . . certainly one of the finest in the world and the finest in the States."
