If you like going back in time and seeing how people lived, you will love seeing the Edison and Ford houses. If you like history - you will love seeing this place. There are guided tours or you can tour it alone. My husband and I checked it out by ourselves.

A must see if you're in town. The area is beautiful and it is interesting to see how they lived their lives. It wouldn't have been as cool with out the christmas lights, but still a must see!
