Memories of the Phonograph



Thomas Edison House is a historic house located in the Butchertown neighborhood of Louisville, Kentucky.

The house is a shotgun duplex built around 1850. Thomas Edison took up residence in the same neighborhood, possibly even at this location, a part of the time he lived in Louisville from 1866 to 1867.
