World’s Longest Burning Light Bulb Is Still Glowing After 117 Years

Centennial Bulb, the Longest burning Light Bulb in history.

The world’s longest-lasting light bulb is burning since 1901 and you can find it on 4550 East Avenue, Livermore, California, being maintained by the Livermore-Pleasanton Fire Department.

Emitting about a 4-watt nightlight, it was originally a 60-watt bulb, but the passing of the time had the last word.

“We Celebrated the One Million Hour Party in 2015! As in 2001, and 2011, the Centennial Light Bulb reached another milestone of 1,000,000 hours! Good times were had by all at Fire Station 6 in Livermore, CA with food, fun, and history in the making.” said the Livermore-Pleasanton Fire Department

The incandescent bulb, with a carbon-filament “was originally hung in 1901 in a hose cart house on L Street, then moved to a garage in downtown Livermore used by the fire and police departments. When the fire department consolidated, it was moved again to a newly constructed City Hall that housed the unified departments.” –Wikipedia
