History of Innovation
Speaking of shining, a light bulb of innovation literally turned on back on the fateful day of October 1, 1883. That was the day that the first underground electrical system, courtesy of Thomas Edison, was switched on, and the world was forever changed. A short year later, the City Theater opened and would be the first one in the world to use the three-wire electrical system to power itself. Edison was a brilliant inventor and electrical engineer, the founding father of this field actually, and Brockton serves as the site for the laboratory of his greatest innovations.
