1942 - Original Building No Longer in Greenfield Village: West Orange Building 11

I am sorry to say this historic structure had been removed from the Village during its 2002/03 "renovation" and returned to West Orange, New Jersey (this info comes from the Wren's Cottage site http://www.wrenscottage.com/gvm/index.php).

This was the place where Thomas Edison and his staff researched and manufactured wax cylinder records for the phonograph. It was originally located in West Orange.

I apologize that I have no photos of the building. Please see the above Wren's Cottage site for a photograph.
