Great Falls in 2008 by Thomas Flagg

on the Industrial Archeology of the New York - New Jersey Area

The next symposium will be in Autumn 2020

The Roebling Chapter of the Society for Industrial Archeology (RCSIA) has produced an annual Symposium on industrial archaeology and related topics within the NY-NJ metropolitan region since 1981. The Symposium has been hosted in Paterson's Great Falls National Historical Park since 2010 with the particular attraction of highlighting the new national park's ongoing development. The symposium brings together professionals and lay-people alike to share a day of papers and short films presented by many talented researchers and practitioners. Topics are wide ranging, but all presentations provide well-illustrated insight into aspects of our industrial past. The prestigious John Augustus Roebling Award for Outstanding Contributions to Industrial Archeology is presented at the symposium each year.
