Restoration efforts for inventor Nikola Tesla’s Wardenclyffe laboratory in Shoreham, New York, recently got a major boost with a $500,000 grant from the National Park Service and the National Endowment for the Arts. Newsline reports that the funding will help pay for turning the long-abandoned lab site into a museum and science education center. 

According to the Tesla Science Center organization (<www.teslasciencecenter.org>), the Save America’s Treasures grant will help stabilize the exterior of the main laboratory building that was constructed in 1901. Amateur radio groups are heavily involved in the restoration effort.
