    • Hearthstone Historic House was at the center of a pivotal moment in history in the United States; the dawning era of electrification, a scientific and technological advancement that had arguably one of the most profound impacts in the way Americans lived their lives from that moment forward. Hearthstone is a nationally significant engineering site as the first house anywhere in the world to be incandescently illuminated by a water powered Western Edison Electric Light Company dynamo power station and an Edison Electric System. This was realized by Henry J. Rogers, an entrepreneur, who not only built the house: He brought electrification technology to Wisconsin and shaped the city of Appleton through his paper mills and his bringing gas and water services to the citizens of Appleton. Beyond its engineering significance, Hearthstone is a truly exceptional example of Queen Anne style residential architecture. Follow us:Twitter @HistoricMuseum & Instagram @hearthstone_museum
