On January 19, 1883, the first electric lighting system employing overhead wires began service in Roselle, and was built by Thomas Edison, as part of an experiment to demonstrate that an entire community could be lit by electricity. The First Presbyterian Church, located on the corner of West 5th and Chestnut, was the first church in the world to be lit by electricity.
