WEST ORANGE, NJ - Thomas Edison National Historical Park, located at 211 Main Street, is celebrating its Annual Edison day in style. Not only has the museum been selected to represent New Jersey's 350th Birthday by hosting "Year of Innovation" events, it's also front and center at the June 7 Downtown West Orange Alliance Street Fair.

Several free events are planned at both the Edison Laboratory and Glenmont, Edison's home in Llewelyn Park. (Fees may apply for regular entrance into the museum).

The Alternative Press is attaching the TENHP schedule of events for June 7, and they can also be downloaded here.

To highlight just a few, get ready for these events at the Laboratory Complex: Joe Fagan, West Orange town historian, will be on hand with West Orange's oldest known artifact, a clock owned by the Williams family in the 1700s; Wax cylinder recordings; the NJ Hall of Fame Mobile Museum will be on-site; Black Maria film events; and hands-on chemistry activities.

Over at Glenmont, get ready for the Electric Car show and tour the property.

This will be the biggest event of the year at Thomas Edison National Historical Park, and everyone's invited.
