In 1866-67, 19 year old Thomas Edison lived in the left side of this shotgun duplex on E. Washington St in Louisville. Each day, he walked to his job at a Western Union telegraph operator at 2nd & Main St - the current site of the KFC YUM! Center Arena - home of UofL basketball.On his lunch breaks, he liked to experiment on new inventions. In 1867, he was fired from Western Union after he spilled some sulfuric acid, which dripped through the floor and onto his boss's desk. He never returned to Louisville.
