Gentlemen:

Some time ago, there was/is mention of the deteriorated condition of the Edison Tower, in the Menlo Park area of Edison Township. There was mention of restoration, and plans for funding.

Update is the Tower was recently 'wrapped' in scaffloding, and is being restored!!

The 'Museum' building, adjacent to the Tower received a 'facelift' and should be re-opening soon. It's NOT a large museum, only about 300 to 400 sq ft.

BUMP & Update:
Since the last posting, the contractor involved in 2011 was removed from the job. All work on the tower stopped.

The adjacent museum re-opened last year.

Now, there is a new contractor for the tower restoration, the tower is wrapped in scaffolding.

There is a picture in the photo gallery.
