In Fort Myers then but plenty
to tell Mr. Edison that this was
a great place to live."
The inventor selected a site
mile and a quarter out of town
and, because there were no car
Denters available, he ordered a
house built in Maine and shipped.
here In sections.
"The schooner was sunk," said
Mrs. Edison, "but that didn't dis
courage him. He never gave up
on anything he started. He just
ordered another house."
Houte, Still Stands
Still as sturdy as the day it
was erected, the pleasant frame
structure and its fine botanical
gardens hold many warm mem
ories for Mrs. Edison. A plump,
friendly woman, she enjoys re
calling them.
"I couldn't understand how
anybody could live here at first,"
she smiled. "We had to bring our
flour and meat with us, and
when the door opened the wind
would be so high the bread
would fly off Die plate.
"But it was exciting and we
enjoyed every minute of it."
Some of the inventor's best
work was done in his old winter
laboratory here.
"He never was bored and
never had a regret," said Mrs.
Edison, "and he never was de
spondent. He'd just pick up and
do something else. He was
always taking money from one
business to help another. He
was always poor. But money as
such didn't mean .anything to
him. He would be as happy in
a hut as a house."
The city once turned down an
offer by Edison to build it a
power plant and furnish free
lighting. City councilmen thought
the electric light would turn out
to be nothing but a fad.
