Christmas Town Ornament

   Hand-made in McAdenville North Carolina  - USA 

In a small park located at Main and Elm Street in McAdenville is a large propeller.

It is rumored to have powered Thomas Edison's generator installed in 1884 at the historic textile mill in McAdenville.

The mill was powered by a water wheel in a raceway under the plant and the generator powered 38 lights.

Local historians remember that Dan Stowe aquired the propeller from the U S Navy for display in McAdenville.

Subsequent hydro generators installed in later years could also be the source of this historic feature of McAdenville.
