Garage Exhibit

Through the years Edison owned a variety of electric, gasoline and even steam powered cars. To house and better maintain these cars, the garage you see was built in 1908 replacing a carriage house. The garage currently houses four automobiles owned by Thomas Edison: a 1922 Model T Ford, a 1908 Electric Locomobile, and 2 Detroit Electrics, a fifth car, a 1936 Brewster, was owned by Charles Edison. The garage was well equipped with a gas pump, turn table to move the cars into position, a grease pit, and a battery charger for the electric cars.
