Staircases will be ringed with boughs and red ribbon bows and wreaths will hang in every window. In the Den, the majestic 10 foot tree will be lit and the presents underneath will be waiting as if the Edison children Madeleine, Theodore and Charles, will soon come running down the stairs from their rooms - after they’ve checked their stockings in the upstairs Living Room!  Family china will be displayed on the Dining Room table and the scene will be completed with holiday cards that were received by the family.

 

The Edison home, Glenmont, is located on a fifteen-acre estate in Llewellyn Park, the country’s first private residential community.  Built in 1880, the twenty-nine room mansion contains the original furnishings and family items used by the Edisons. The estate grounds include gardens, a greenhouse, barn, and the poured concrete garage containing the family’s automobiles. Thomas and Mina Edison are buried on the grounds of the estate. 

 

The Holidays at Glenmont tours will be offered on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from 10:00 p.m. until 4:00 p.m. through December 31, 2011.  Additional holiday tours will be offered on Wednesday and Thursday, December 28 and 29.
