Salem Harbor Station / COOKFOX


From the architect. The Harbor Station, built between 1948 and 1951, is a coal fired station which occupies a 65-acre site in Salem, Massachusetts. One of the region’s dirtiest coal- and oil-burning generators, the 748 megawatt station sits within the historical maritime hub of Salem’s waterfront. The facility is topped by three towering smokestacks that pierce the skyline, and can be seen from many parts of Salem as well as the neighboring communities of Beverly and Marblehead. 

Learn more about the station’s transformation after the break…
