This is the original arch entrance to the Adams Station, the world's first hydroelectric power plant. Electric power, its transmission in commercial quantities to remote distances, the design and building of the first large electrical equipment- all started with the completion of the Adams Station in 1895 at Niagara Falls. Its entrance was re-erected on this site in 1966 to commemorate the tremendous impact which the generation of electric power at the Adams Station gave to civilization throughout the world. This arch dedicated 1967 by Nelson A. Rockerfeller, Governor.
