There was a time in the Adirondacks when American ingenuity was plugging into a new invention, called electricity.
I recently attended a yearly celebration at The Penfield Homestead Museum in the hamlet of Ironville, Crown Point, where they harnessed that new-age power to create an amazing tool used in the processing of iron ore – an early electromagnet.
