5 years ago, citizens erected two life size statues of Thomas Edison and Charles Steinmetz along Erie Boulevard, Schenectady. This was done so that our citizens would never forget the great heritage that we have here since the early days of creating and harnessing electricity. But the story has not been finished.
To better tell the story we are now erecting a larger-than-life-sized statue of local citizen, inventor, entrepreneur and philanthropist, George Westinghouse, Jr. We have raised most of the money necessary to sculpt, cast, erect, light, landscape and tell the story of George Jr.
