Sponsor an Edison Replica Bench

Thomas and Mina Edison were frequenly seen enjoying the scenery from one of their garden benches throughout the grounds.  Consider donating a replica bench in your name or in the name of a family member or as a way to commemorate a special event.  You may also wish to purchase a bench for use in your own garden.
