Your Question


Q: Were Thomas Alva Edison and Henry Ford close friends?

A: Yes, Thomas Alva Edison and Henry Ford were close friends and neighbors. When Alva and Henry first met, Henry was introduced to Alva as "the young fellow who's made a gas car." Alva, of course, encouraged Henry by saying, "Keep at it!" By 1915, Alva and Henry were good friends, and Alva invited Henry and his wife to stay at his home in Fort Myers, Florida. The next year, Henry bought the house next door, and the close friends also became close neighbors. They spent the next 15 winters together in Fort Myers. Today, these homes are operated by the Edison-Ford Winter Estates and open for public tours. Read a book about Thomas Alva Edison, Read a book about Henry Ford, or Visit the Edison-Ford Winter Estates.
