Laboratory Library

Henry Hudson Holly was a famous architect known for designing Victorian style houses such as the Glenmont Estate, the home of Thomas Edison. Edison was so impressed by Holly’s work that he commissioned Holly to design his personal library in the laboratory, which is located down the street from the estate. However, Edison did not like the pace at which Holly was working, and he was eventually fired.
