Schenectady City Guide

Schenectady is the ultimate American company town. The first was Schenectady Locomotive Works in 1851. Thomas Edison then used two abandoned buildings in the railroad yard to start General Electric, transforming Schenectady into "The city that lights and hauls the world." Thanks to its dynamic research industry sector and higher education institutions, over the past few years Schenectady has become known for its vibrant job sector. In fact, the city’s research “brain base” means more patents are held here than just about anyplace else.

Architecture and landmarks

The Stockade Historic District has one of the highest concentrations of period houses in America with over 40 residences having been occupied for over 200 years. Back in the day, General Electric bought 90 acres of prime Schenectady real estate to build a residential neighborhood for its employees. The General Electric Realty Plot is a gallery of American residential architectural styles in Foursquares, Colonials, Queen Annes and Tudors. The first all-electric house, naturally, was here. Next door on the Union College campus, Nott Memorial Hall is a landmark of High Victorian Gothic architecture.

The monumental Neo-Georgian Schenectady City Hall is the result of a national design competition. The Mabee Farm, now part of the Schenectady County Historical Society, dates to the early 1700s and is the oldest residence in the Mohawk Valley. Proctor’s Theatre, a Neoclassical jewel, once had one of America’s largest movie screens and is where the public saw one of the first demonstrations of television.
