State Line Generating Station

The State Line Generating Station was originally built by Commonwelth Edison in the late 1920's.  The original structure is an Art Deco, industrial design.  The taller structure to the right was added later.  Recently, Commonwealth Edison sold the plant as part of its program to change from a producer of electricity to a distribution network of electricity.
