Edison's Menlo Park, New Jersey Laboratory - Birthplace of the Phonograph -Google Virtual Tour
Reconstructed at Henry Ford Museum, Greenfield Village, Michigan
With the completion of the Phonograph at Edison's Menlo Park Laboratory on December 6, 1877 the social, cultural and literal rpm revolution of recorded sound officially began.
Sound recording was actually invented twice. But it was Thomas Alva Edison and his head machinist, John Kruesi, who first successfully captured the human voice and played it back on Edison's "Talking Phonograph." (3)
This site celebrates the phonograph and its role in everyday life up to the present day. Ephemeral sound was captured and replayed in 1877 and we still do it today.
