Salida Performing Arts Center (Salida Steam Plant)
Various additions have made what was originally a small frame structure into a large complex of two, two-story buildings of local red brick with recessed brick panels between brick pilasters and round windows in the gables. The plant provided electricity for Salida from 1887 until it shut down in 1958. The 75-foot stack has been removed, and the complex was recycled in 1989 as a summer stock theater for the Powerhouse Players.
