This tall red brick building, the Folsom Powerhouse, is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Fed by the American River, this hydroelectric plant was put into operation in 1893 until 1952. It houses four 750-kilowatt electrical generators, driven by four McCormick dual turbines with a capacity of 1260 horsepower, delivering power to Sacramento, California 22 miles away.
