What Makes Schenectady Special?
Schenectady has a long history of being the site for innovation, creativity, education and commerce. That tradition continues as reflected in the unique way Schenectady has merged its past and present innovation.
Stockade Historic District
The Stockade Historic District is recognized by the National Park Service as having the most historic homes in one area in the country. Bordered by the Mohawk River and the Amtrak and CSX Railroad tracks, the area serves as a reminder of Schenectady’s original Dutch, Scottish and English settlers. The Stockade area has been populated for over 300 years and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Union College was founded in 1795 and is a private liberal arts college located in the Stockade Historic District. Union is one of the oldest non-denominational colleges in the United States. During the 1800s, Union was considered a very prestigious college ranking in the same class as Harvard, Yale and Princeton. While maintaining its focus on liberal arts, Union was the first college to introduce classes in Engineering, American History and Constitutional Government. Union was also one of the first colleges to offer “elective” courses, enabling students to expand their studies based on their area of interest. It wasn’t until 1970 that Union became co-educational and admitted women. Today, Union College is a thriving liberal arts college with over eight acres of beautiful gardens and the distinctive 16-sided Nott Memorial Building.
In 1887 Thomas Edison moved his company, Edison Machine Works, to Schenectady. Edison Machine Works was just one of the businesses owned by this prolific inventor/entrepreneur. In 1890 Edison merged his businesses under Edison General Electric Company, which was the precursor to today’s General Electric. Many of Edison’s inventions and ideas are reflected as the inspiration for General Electric’s products and services. Visitors can explore the genius and sometimes controversial mind of Edison along with his inventions and the development of GE in the Hall of Electrical History located in the Schenectady Museum.
In the early 1900s as the population of Schenectady grew, Frederick Proctor, the Dean of Vaudeville, expanded his chain of theaters and built the most ultra-ornate theater yet. The theater opened in 1925 and adjoined an arcade and department store to create a center for entertainment and commerce. After many years of financial ups and downs and various owners, the city of Schenectady took over the theater in the 1970s and oversaw massive renovations. In 1980, Proctor’s was listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Today, continuing the vision of Frederick Proctor, the theater remains a destination of historical and architectural distinction, fine entertainment, and community commerce.

Justin is a professional, A+ job, will use this company for all chimney needs.
I was so happy to find your ad in a magazine
~Mrs. Lucarelli, Schenectady, NY
Great job! Thanks!
~ Mike F.
I just wanted to write to tell you how pleased we are with the chimney work your guys did. The repaired fireplace chimney looks better than it did when it was new! Your men showed up on time…worked the whole day and cleaned up to leave the area spotless!
Frank took the time to show me the tile damage inside my furnace chimney prior to installing the liner. The original tile liner was almost completely destroyed allowing fumes to penetrate into our home through the crumbling mortar. No wonder we had headaches much of the heating season!
If you would ever need us for a recommendation, please don’t hesitate to call us as we were pleased with every facet of the job.
