The Edison and Ford Winter Estates are celebrating their official reopening on November 3 from 5-8 p.m by hosting a "Light the Site" event. Visitors can see the site as it officially reopens after Hurricane Irma.

The event will be held in honor of the 130th anniversary of Thomas Edison first lighting his winter home with electric lights. 

When Thomas Edison first lit his Fort Myers winter home with electric lights the entire town lined the sidewalk to see the lights.
