    I am glad to know this is still a loved landmark. We went on a tour so many years ago, and it was wonderful seeing such a wonderful landmark. Edison was truley a genius.

    Next to Thomas Edison house is a canal and in front of this canal there is a historical marker. It reads: "Milan Canal Basin"
    Milan was a leading Great Lakes port after the completion of the 3 mile Milan Canal in 1839. Center of activity was the Milan Basin at this site where produce was brought from area farms for shipment to lake and world ports through 14 warehouses by as many as 20 schooners a day. Seventy-five vessels were built in the basin. Railroad competition and the flood of 1868 ended Milan's port activity.
