  |  May 5, 2014

The homes of Quality Row are historical gems. In 1836 Thomas Edison stayed in one of these homes as a guest while establishing the Edison Illuminating Company. This is how the name Quality Row came about according to the 1891 publication Newburgh: Her Institutions, Industries and Leading Citizens:

At the time of their erection these house were considered much above the average in cost and elegance, and for this reason, combined with the high social standing of the original occupants, the buildings were known throughout the village as “Quality Row,” a designation which still lingers among our old families.”
