Thomas Edison had several labs and workshops at his Florida Winter Estate.
Edison was studying sources of natural rubber from plants. There was at least one large rubber plant on site, and he was experimenting with other plants, such as goldenrod, that could potentially be used for commercial rubber production.
I would recommend that you plan a whole day for this site. We toured the grounds, but we only had time to quickly walk through the museum and laboratory.
