Paterson is a unique city in the New Jersey landscape. Once a hub of American ingenuity and industrial production, it slowly relinquished that role as mechanization and cramped space led industries out of the cities and into other parts of the United States.

The city of Paterson tells a story of a planned city built on industry to supply a nation with a variety of finished goods and products and the ingenuity that propelled the United States to become an industrial superpower well into the twentieth century.

Third largest city in New Jersey and the county seat of Passaic County, Paterson has always been home to a working class of many different cultures and creeds. Of the many small cities with a deep connection to some of the most compelling chapters in American history, industry and social change, Paterson is not to be overlooked. Both nature and man played pivotal roles in Paterson’s founding and legacy.
