The story of Paterson is the story of its Great Falls. European settlers were awed by the natural wonder that the Lenni-Lenape called Acquackanonk. Fulfilling Alexander Hamilton's vision, the Falls fueled Paterson's development into the leader of the nation's Industrial Revolution, powering mills and factories into the twentieth century. In 1967, the Great Falls became a National Natural Landmark and then a National Historic Landmark District in 1976. Finally, in 2011, the Falls was designated a National Historic Park. Join Patersonian Marcia Dente as she explores the beauty and industry of Paterson's Great Falls.
