Seminole Lodge at Edison and Ford Winter Estates in Fort Myers, Florida

During Thomas Edison’s career as an inventor, he was awarded nearly 1,100 patients including ones for the electric light, sound recording and movies. Two years after his first wife died, he married again in 1886 and gave Mino two wedding gifts: a home in New Jersey and this winter retreat in Fort Myers called Seminole Lodge. The family enjoyed this Florida retreat for over 60 years until she donated it to the city in 1947. The complex of buildings and gardens are now part of a popular attraction called the Edison and Ford Winter Estates.
