The Edison's were given land in Vienna (known then as Shrewsbury) to establish a town. Vienna was once a booming town of 5000 but now has a population of 500.

Thomas Edison's father fled from Vienna after being involved with the rebellion of 1837. Had the rebellion not taken place, Thomas Edison may have been born in Canada.
