Nikola Tesla Statue

statue of nikola tesla


Nikola Tesla designed the first hydroelectric power plant at Niagara Falls which started producing electrical power in 1895. This was the beginning of electrification.

Overlooking the majestic Horseshoe Falls at Queen Victoria Park is the statue of the brilliant man, a Serbian-American scientist.

As a boy, Tesla saw a picture of Niagara Falls and told his uncle in Lika, Croatia, that he wanted to put a wheel under the falls to harness the power of the moving water.

Tesla Monument at Niagara Falls unveiled on July 9, 2006. Tesla is standing atop an AC motor (alternating current electricity supply system), one of the 700 inventions he patented.
