NELA Park

1For my 1ne post today, I’m posting this GE building located in Cleveland. It is called Nela Park and was the headquarters for GE Lighting. According to Wikipedia, GE Lighting is a part of GE Home & Business Solutions, headquartered in Louisville, Kentucky. Nela Park served as the operating headquarters of GE Lighting. Development of the site was started in 1911, when the National Electric Lamp Association (NELA) was dissolved and absorbed into General Electric. It was the first industrial park in the world, and was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1975. The campus, founded in 1933, emulates a university setting, and the dominant architectural style is Georgian Revival.
