Wardenclyffe Tower

The Wardenclyffe Tower (or Tesla Tower) was built for Nikola Tesla in Shoreham c. 1902 by Stanford White (who designed the main building).  Tesla was trying to build a wireless electricity and communications tower and the core of the structure was never fully completed.  By 1907 the place was more or less shut down as Tesla had run out of financing.  Click HERE to see where the Tesla Tower stood on google earth.
