Birthplace of the Electrical AgeAllen Penfield, Timothy Taft, and Allen Harwood pioneered the first industrial use of electricity in their iron works below the pond south of the marker. Thomas Davenport, the blacksmith of Brandon, Vermont, in 1833 bought the electro-magnet used in his forge, which led to his invention of the electric motor.
