Built in 1882, this stunning Victorian landmark is the first home in the world lit by a hydroelectric central station based on the Thomas A. Edison system. Guided tours of the museum offer a step back in time to the dawn of domestic electricity. Original light fixtures, light switches, woodwork, stained glass and beautiful architecture greet each guest. An exciting hydro-adventure discovery center and gift shop are just right for kids of all ages. Changing exhibits, events and programs are held throughout the year.
