Researching the history of Troy's industrial sites can be a bit confusing, especially when what little I have been able to do is from home via computer. Many factory sites changed hands over time, old buildings were torn down, new buildings constructed. But from what I have been able to gather here is that this coke plant, built to manufacture gas, was built by the New York Power and Light Corporation (later overtaken by Niagara-Mohawk) in 1924 at a cost of six million dollars. Today, the property serves as a bus depot.
