Administrative History

Back to table of contents

The Schenectady Labor Temple Association was incorporated in 1907 and was primarily interested in the erection and then the management of the Schenectady Labor Temple. The Association has also been involved in promoting labor interests in Schenectady, New York, most obviously through the publication of an annual labor and business directory. The Schenectady Labor Temple was designed by Schenectady architect R. L. Bowen and completed in 1927 on the corner of Clinton and Liberty Streets. The Labor Temple provided office and meeting space for unions throughout eastern New York and extending as far north as the Canadian border.
