Founded in 1792, historic Paterson, New Jersey was established as the country’s first planned industrial community, using the magnificent Great Falls to power mills and factories. Those Falls, now part of a protected National Park, remain a central focus for this busy county seat of Passaic County and the metro area thrives as one of the state’s most populous cities.
