Thomas Edison House to Celebrate Master Inventor’s 165th Birthday

Thomas Edison turns 165 next month — and Louisville is throwing a birthday party for the celebrated inventor and scientist.

The historic Thomas Edison House, located at 729 E. Washington St. in Butchertown, will host a day-long birthday party on Saturday, Feb. 11 that includes a cake shaped like a light bulb.

The party begins at 10 a.m. and lasts until 3 p.m. Admission is FREE for children under 12. Normal admission rates for Adults ($5) and Seniors ($4).
Edison came to Louisville in 1866, at age of 19, to work as a telegraph key operator, landing a job with Western Union located at Second and West Main Street, about eight blocks from his small brick Butchertown home that now is a museum in his honor.
