Since 1989, the Powerhouse Eatery has been providing customers with an exceptional dining experience in a unique and historic atmosphere. While paying homage to the buildings past, the former power plant was transformed into a contemporary dining destination welcoming customers throughout the country to our home in White Haven, Pennsylvania. The building's history lays the foundation for our unique dining experience accompanied by our relentless attention to detail, commitment to quality, and unparalleled customer satisfaction.
In the late 19th century, a group of philanthropists were seeking a location for an institution constructed to specifically treat people suffering from "consumption," a bygone term for tuberculosis. In the days before vaccinations and antibiotics, cold, dry air was believed to have a therapeutic effect for sufferers of TB. The town of White Haven offered such a climate, in addition to other geographical benefits. White Haven was easily reached by train from New York; at the same time, it was isolated enough to provide a measure of containment against the spread of TB.
The White Haven Sanatorium was founded in 1907 with Dr. Lawrence Flick as its head. Initially, the Sanatorium consisted of only a few buildings, but as the spread of tuberculosis reached epidemic proportions, the facility expanded. Over the next thirty years several new buildings were constructed, including additional wards and a nursing school. The rapid growth of the Sanatorium quickly outstripped the 400 kilowatt capacity of the White Haven Light, Heat & Power Company, mandating the construction of a dedicated coal-to-steam power plant to supply the growing medical complex with electricity.
In 1938, wealthy industrialist Pierre Dupont donated $125,000 to the center in gratitude for the care given to his tuberculosis-afflicted personal secretary. These funds were used to further expand the power plant. Prior to its renovation, the plant had encompassed only what are today the bar and the lounge; Dupont's gift provided for what are now the dining room and state-of-the-art kitchen. The variations in brickwork between the older and newer walls clearly illustrate the fact that this structure evolved in stages, a fascinating historic characteristic we have taken great care to preserve.
