The construction of larger and more efficient electric generating stations at Niagara made the original Adams Plant obsolete. It has been demolished. The main entrance to this first powerhouse with the legended Indian Medallion by Frederick McMonnies in the fan arch above the doorway was taken down piece by piece and re-erected here. The cost of materials was met by subscription from interested corporations. The site was made available by the Niagara Frontier State Park Commission. On a voluntary basis, the Builders' Association of Niagara Falls furnished equipment and administration. Perhaps the greatest contribution was from the individual members of the Niagara Falls Building Trades Council who donated their time and skill on their days off to make the re-erection of this memorial possible.
