General Electric's Nela Park The world headquarters of General Electric's Lighting Division, Nela Park was the world's first industrial park. Today Nela Park is comprised of a 92 acre campus with 20 Georgian Revival-style buildings and has approximately 800 employees. Established in 1911 on property that once housed a vineyard in what was then rural countryside, Nela Park was designated a Natuonal Historic Place in 1975.
Nela Park has been doing its annual lighting display for 89 years. The entire display is lit by energy-efficient GE LED lights displaying crisp, vibrant and bright colors for all to see. The LED lights last 10 times longer than traditional Christmas lights and use only about 20% of the energy.
