On April 1, 1884, one of the country’s first central electric generating stations opened in the then Village of Newburgh, New York.

Thomas Alva Edison personally supervised the construction of the facility which was designed to produce power for incandescent lighting. The Village of Newburgh station provided a 1,600-light capacity. It still stands at 59-69 Montgomery Street.

From George Washington to Franklin Delano Roosevelt, writers to architects, poets to painters, inventors to actors - the invention of the silver screen - down to the first box spring mattress all started here.

Edison illuminated that village, this now City of Newburgh, and with that light, helped launch us into a future of grand possibilities. We will continue to honor the new and visionary works of all those who pass through our halls and the change they inspire, not only within ourselves, but also in the world.
