Special Presentation: Great Falls Nat'l Park
April 12, 2018 –
Join us for a special presentation on the Paterson Great Falls National Historical Park. Presented by NPS Ranger Ernesto Hernandez, this hour-long PowerPoint presentation will look at the creation of the National Park, which revolves around the centuries-long industrial history of Paterson.
Paterson, the country's first planned industrial city, supported many industries -- notably the silk mills. Ranger Ernie will also talk about the (short) history of the Colt family and the Colt Revolver industry in Paterson.
