The Paterson Community
Alexander Hamilton created Paterson, NJ as the first intentional industrial city. He figured that the new nation would need to DIY pretty much everything since Britain wasn’t too impressed with losing the Revolutionary War. The Great Falls on the Passaic River allowed factories to begin using water to power their equipment.
Silk and cotton mills sprung up and dominated the area during the 19th century. By 1913, there were 300 silk and dye mills. At one point, workers organized a strike about safety and working conditions, shutting things down for 5 months.
Paterson mill owners pressured local officials to close the labor halls in Paterson to prevent strike organizers from meeting. Many of the workers lived in Haledon and worked in Paterson, including silk worker Pietro Botto. Botto organized a huge rally at his home, and there organizers spoke to 20,000 striking workers.
The Botto House is now the home of the American Labor Museum, and the silk strike it catalyzed is considered to be the beginning of the American labor and union movement.
