On April 17, 1970, the U.S. Secretary of the Interior designated the Great Falls of the Passaic/Society for Establishing Useful Manufactures Historic District in Paterson, New Jersey as a National Historic Landmark (NHL). The district was recognized as nationally significant as one of the first attempts in the United States to harness river power to industrial production when Alexander Hamilton and associates established the Society for Establishing Useful Manufactures (S.U.M.) in 1791. The S.U.M. engaged renowned engineer Pierre Charles L¿Enfant and, after the panic of 1792, Peter Colt to construct a reservoir and raceway to power a cotton mill. During the first half of the 19th century, the S.U.M. expanded the raceway system, constructing additional canals and locks, to accommodate new factories and to facilitate river transportation, as well as a hydro-electric plant in the early 20th century. The Great Falls NHL District includes the major components of the first major hydraulic power system in the U.S., including the site of the original S.U.M. dam and raceway entrance, a second dam, the S.U.M. gatehouse, the Ivanhoe Wheelhouse, the Market Street underground raceway, the Essex Mill penstock and reservoir, the Essex Mill spillway, and the sandstone bridge spanning this spillway. A 1986 boundary expansion to the Great Falls NHL District included the Argus Mill within the district. With the decline of textile manufacturing during the 20th century, Paterson¿s industrial infrastructure has undergone significant changes through stages of deindustrialization and revitalization. In 2011, the Paterson Great Falls National Historical Park was established to preserve and interpret resources associated with Paterson¿s industrial past. While the park is undertaking a Historic Resource Study and an Ethnographic Overview and Assessment to inventory and evaluate cultural resources within the park¿s boundary, an evaluation of the nationally significant resources of the Great Falls NHL District that fall outside of the park boundary is needed. This project will conduct a thorough inventory and condition assessment of all resources within the NHL District that will inform updated National Register/NHL documentation and contribute to the preservation and interpretation of these nationally significant resources. RECIPIENT INVOLVEMENT a. Work with the NPS Northeast Region to complete an inventory and condition assessment of cultural resources within the boundaries of the Great Falls of the Passaic/S.U.M. (Society for Useful Manufactures) National Historic Landmark District. b. Work with NPS to develop a detailed statement of work, based on Article I of this task agreement that will be used to identify appropriate scholars and task their work. c. Engage an appropriate scholar to undertake the work and act as the liaison between the NPS and the scholar; d. Ensure that the final survey and inventory manuscript is prepared as a scholarly report meeting the standards of the historical profession and the NPS through project management, including coordination of agency and peer review comments and provision of editorial services; e. Make the report available to its membership, as well as the general public, and promote the report within its professional networks so as to make the report as widely available as possible to scholars of American History, so that those scholars and teachers may use the report¿s findings in their teaching and writing, to the benefit of not only the scholarly community but students at many levels; Promote, to its membership and through its professional networks, any use by NPS of the report in its management and planning, so as to draw attention to its continued efforts to make the presentation and practice of American History within NPS as informed, current, and professional as possible NATIONAL PARK SERVICE INVOLVEMENT Substantial involvement on the part the National Park Service is anticipated for the successful completion of the objectives to be funded by this award. In particular, the National Park Service will be responsible for the following: a. Work with the OAH to develop a detailed statement of work, based on Article I of this task agreement, for the scholar to follow in order to complete the inventory and condition assessment report; b. Work with the OAH in selecting the scholar(s) to conduct the research; c. Provide the scholar with relevant NHL documentation, including copies of all district nominations and updates and direct the scholar to repositories for existing inventories and analyses; d. Coordinate the exchange of research materials and analyses for the scholar(s) with the principal investigators of research projects conducted by Paterson Great Falls NHP, including a Historic Resource Study and an Ethnographic Overview & Assessment; e. Review the progress of the research to ensure relevance and quality; f. Distribute the report and make the research available to park managers and the general public for use in management and planning; The OAH and the NPS agree to work cooperatively on the project on a regular basis for the purpose of providing guidance to the scholars(s), monitoring work, providing input, and setting or adjusting priorities.
