It's always amazing to see ASME Landmarks in person! We took a drive to visit the Great Falls Raceway and Power System, also known as #ASMElandmark #28, in Paterson, New Jersey.
The project, conceived by Alexander Hamilton in 1791 and designed by Pierre Charles L'Enfant and Peter Colt, is the first major water power system and basis for integrating urban planning with industrial development in the U.S.
Honored as a landmark by ASME in 1977, the Great Falls Raceway and Power System provided an abundance of inexpensive energy, which helped improve industries such as textiles and textile machinery, the Colt revolver, Rogers' and other steam locomotives, silk manufacturing, flax and jute production, early Wright aircraft engines, apparel manufacturing, and many more.
