The Invention Factory

In the fall of 1887, Thomas Edison moved into his new laboratory complex in the town of West Orange, N.J. For the next 44 years Edison directed teams of research assistants in his "Invention Factory" and created a model for modern research and development laboratories.

Today, New Jersey's urban growth almost hides this historic site. Yet these brick buildings reveal the story of Thomas Edison, those who worked with him, and the inventions they produced.
