Wednesday, October 6, 2021 will mark the 175th anniversary of the birth of George Westinghouse Jr.
In observation of his “dodrensbicentennial,” efforts are underway to restore Westinghouse Park, formerly the site of “Solitude,” the estate of George and Marguerite Westinghouse.
The creation of a comprehensive master development plan for the park is already underway, including the construction of a new community building and the implementation of a multi-year, archeological exploration of the historic site.
In addition, a broader effort is taking shape, a 175th retrospective of George Westinghouse, his life, accomplishments, impacts, and legacies.
We call it Westinghouse 175.
