NJ Sketchers at Paterson Falls Sept 29, 2022
What do cotton and silk fabrics, steam locomotives, continuous rolls of paper and airplane engines, have in common??
ANSWER: They were all made in Paterson, New Jersey. And that is because of the Great Falls in Patterson.
The Great Patterson Falls are a both a natural wonder and an integral part of the economic development of New Jersey from the Revolutionary War through the industrial revolution and into the 20th Century. Join us as we explore the falls, the surrounding park and the old industrial buildings lining the streets around the falls.
