Thomas Edison Depot Museum in Port Huron

Michigan has been blessed with many inventors, entrepreneurs and innovators including Thomas Alva Edison who grew up along the shores of Lake Huron after relocating from his birthplace in Ohio. We visited the Thomas Edison Depot Museum right under the Blue Water Bridge in Port Huron. There is a baggage railroad car attached to the museum set up with a recreation of the mobile printing press he used to publish his first newspaper, the first to ever be printed on a moving train.  He did this at age 12.  Our favorite display is Tom working the telegraph.  Remember our Mt. Clemens Depot post?
