Folsom Powerhouse Museum
The old Folsom Powerhouse on the American River has changed little since its completion in 1869. Built by H.P. Livermore, the two-story Tennessee marble structure still has its original generators, transformers and switchboards. When the powerhouse was in operation, the transformers delivered from 800-11,000 volts of electricity 22 miles downstream to Sacramento. Today, visitors can view all of the old works including the canal system, which channeled water from the dam.
This is a great place to visit but the address and phone number listed here are wrong. The Power House is on Riley at the corner of Scott and the phone number is 916-985-4843.
The address and phone number listed are for another WONDERFULmuseum in Folsom, the Folsom History Museum. This is what is at 823 Sutter Street.
