Alexander Hamilton’s Vision for the Rise of Industry in Paterson, NJ: Allied Textile Printing Site

Presented by Gianfranco Archimede, Executive Director of the Paterson Historic Preservation Commission

Alexander Hamilton played an intimate role in the selection of the Great Falls of the Passaic. The site was designated by the Society for the Establishment of Useful Manufacturers to experiment with Hamilton’s vision of a national economy based on manufacturing. One substantial outcome of this selection was the establishment of America’s first planned industrial city – Paterson, NJ. This talk explores the significance of Hamilton’s vision for the Great Falls and Paterson as an industrial center; looking at the Allied Textile Printing Site (ATP) Site as a case study of Hamilton’s vision. Over the years, a remarkable assortment of industries was established at ATP that are representative of Paterson’s historic industrial prowess, its innovations in technology, and its great prosperity and wealth.
