More than two decades before American Falls Dam was built, water power was generated in a series of plants at America Falls.


Starting with an island plant to serve Pocatello in 1902, this superlative site was utilized soon after long transmission lines were developed. As new kinds of turbines and generators were invented, they were installed here. Rare examples of old technology still are preserved in these landmark plants.
