The Chestnut Street Pump Station is a historic building located along the shores of Lake Erie. This building, an asset to the bayfront, was renovated and added on to accommodate a 6000 square foot service/exhibit area to match the architectural style of the original building. The transformation of the original building included replacement and renovation of the existing water pumps, electrical service and process equipment.
The Chestnut Street Pump Station, renovated in 2002, showcases the illuminated Big Bertha, a historical 4-story steam engine. Big Bertha was cited a Pennsylvania Historical Mechanical Engineering Landmark in 1981.
