The first commercial use of Tesla's alternating current system occurred here in 1891.

On Google Earth maps the location is 37.865159, -107.882785. It appears to now be mostly private houses. I wonder if there are any detectable ruins and historic artifacts from the Ames plant. Might be a fun trip with a metal detector and camera for a Tesla Universe member.
