Help Bring A Statue of Nikola Tesla to Buffalo, NY

Nikola Tesla, genius physicist and inventor, engineered the first long-distance transmission of AC electricity to Buffalo, NY in 1896. Our city was the first on the planet to be so honored. He electrified our entire civilization and it started right here. Yet, there is not a street, road, avenue, or even an alley named for him.
Nor is there a building, a school, or even a plaque in his honor. He immigrated to this country with 4¢, spent his entire life devoted to the betterment of mankind, and died in great debt. But the debt that humankind owes him is far greater. That is why we are going to erect a 7-ft bronze statue of Nikola Tesla in downtown Buffalo. Help us achieve this goal!

Please join the generous benefactors who are making this Community Project possible. The fine people of these companies are making the Nikola Tesla Statue in Buffalo a reality: SIGNS of GOLD, Inc.; TRAUTMAN ASSOCIATES; The OLD DUTCHMAN Wrought Iron Works, Inc.; FERGUSON ELECTRIC Construction Co., Inc.; CONCEPT CONSTRUCTION Corp; MarbleCast Products, Inc and more to come.

Now here is your opportunity to join in on this Community Project to honor Nikola Tesla in Buffalo! Be a part of history. Pay homage to Nikola Tesla. Your contribution will help to pay the debt we owe him.
