The American Labor Museum

Njmonthly.com’s Where Workers Are Honored: A Labor Museum highlights the American Labor Museum, located in Haledon, NJ.

“Almost a century ago, 25,000 striking workers shut down Paterson’s silk industry for almost six months, from February to July 1913. When the workers were forbidden to gather in the city, they met across the town line in Haledon at the modest Victorian home of Pietro and Maria Botto, northern Italian immigrants who worked in Paterson’s silk mills.”

Today, the Botto’s home is a national landmark and home to the American Labor Museum, where each year special events mark Labor Day weekend. The museum will be open from 1 to 4 pm throughout Labor Day weekend. Through December, the museum will also feature the exhibit, “The Shirts Off Our Backs: Union T-Shirt Quilts.”
