L Street Power Station Historic Timeline
Today, you know it as the Edison Power Station, a familiar landmark on the South Boston skyline. But for years, the power station had remarkable influence over the New England area, home to some of the most technologically advanced generators in the country. By the mid-1960s, it was the largest generating power station operating in a six-state area. While the power station may be closed today, the character of the buildings on the site remain, and we plan to preserve what we can to keep the station’s history alive for all of South Boston residents to enjoy.
