Tesla's Visionary Tower
The Dream of Wardenclyffe
Construction of the Wardenclyffe facility began in 1901 and was based on one of Tesla’s most revolutionary ideas: a global, wireless system for communication and power transfer. Consisting of a brick laboratory building and a 187-foot wooden tower, the site was a testament to Tesla’s grand vision.
Tesla's Tower at Wardenclyffe
A Dream Ahead of Its Time
By 1900, Tesla was already widely regarded as America’s foremost electrical engineer, having dazzled the world with his groundbreaking inventions and his triumph over Thomas Edison in the “battle of currents.”
It was then that he embarked on his most ambitious project to date: the transmission tower at Wardenclyffe. Constructed during the period of 1901-05, the Wardenclyffe facility was based on another of Tesla’s revolutionary ideas.
Tesla planned to use the tower to achieve what the scientific community had so far considered impossible: a global, wireless communication system. The tower would be the prototype for a system that could broadcast music, news, stock market reports, secured military communications, even facsimile images around the world, using the Earth itself as a conductor. It was an incredibly prescient attempt to create a telecommunications infrastructure similar to what the Internet offers us today—but completely wireless.
Wardenclyffe Tower: Tesla’s Dream of a World System of Wireless Power Distribution
After completing his work in Colorado Springs Tesla departed on 7 January 1900; his laboratory being dismantled to cover some of his debts. With his new discoveries now in hand events moved rapidly forwards, with Tesla seeking out financial backing to construct the first power plant/wireless transmission station of the ‘world system’ he envisioned. Up stepped the great financier J. P. Morgan. After several discussions Tesla was able to convince Morgan of the superiority of his system over those of his competitors, and in 1901 a contract was signed between both men granting Tesla $150,000 to build the station on Long Island, New York (a sum equivalent to $4,252,200 in present day US dollars). This gave Morgan precisely 51% of the company that was formed around the project.

VISIONARY OR MADMAN?
Meet Nikola Tesla, the genius engineer and tireless inventor whose technology revolutionized the electrical age of the 20th century. Regarded by many historians as an eccentric genius, Tesla gained international fame for his invention of a system of alternating current that made possible the distribution of electricity over vast distances and is the basis for the electrical grid that powers 21st century life. But the visionary Tesla imagined much more — robots, radio, radar, remote control, the wireless transmission of messages and pictures, and harnessing the wind and sun to provide free energy to all. A showman, he dazzled his scientific peers who flocked to see him demonstrate his inventions and send thousands of volts of electricity pulsing through his body. His fertile but undisciplined imagination was the source of his genius but also his downfall, as the image of Tesla as a “mad scientist” came to overshadow his reputation as a brilliant innovator. Even before his death in 1943, he was largely forgotten, his name obscured by Thomas Edison — his hero, one-time employer, and rival. But it is his exhilarating sense of the future that has inspired renewed interest in the man, as his once scoffed-at vision of a world connected by wireless technology has become a realit
