On Saturday, October 10, Stevenson FMI students and faculty traveled to Thomas Edison National Park – home of the Black Maria studio, where the first movies were shot in the 1890s – as well as of countless other inventions of the great American “wizard” (as Edison was known). After that visit, we continued on into New York City for the rest of the day. It was a glorious trip!

Here is a photo of the Black Maria studio (actually an exact replica of the original, destroyed long ago):
