Built in 1905 by the Baltimore Ferro-Concrete Company, this power plant brought many jobs to the surrounding area. It was the largest reinforced concrete power plant in the world. It was owned by Baltimore Gas and Electric and was a steam powered plant. It originally used reciprocating steam engines which were quickly replaced by turbines.
