Great Falls in 2008 by Thomas Flagg

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

Since 1981 the Roebling Chapter SIA has hosted a well attended and much respected annual symposium on the industrial archeology and history of the New York and New Jersey region. Starting in 2010 the event will be held in Paterson, NJ – the Cradle of American Industry. 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.
