Steinmetz Cabin

Steinmetz Cabin Charles P. Steinmetz, a German immigrant who made significant contributions to electrical engineering and was one of the world's leading experts on electrical theory during the early 1900’s, built this cabin around 1896, overlooking Viele’s Creek near his home in Schenectady, New York, as a retreat to write and study. Steinmetz made significant improvements in the design of electric motors, authored many scientific works, and received almost 200 patents for electric inventions while employed with General Electric.
