 Mid-19th-Century Workers' Housing in Paterson

Mid-19th-Century Workers' Housing in Paterson

In the summer of 2015 Hunter Research completed an intensive-level historic architectural survey of the Dublin neighborhood in Paterson's historic downtown.  Led by Patrick Harshbarger, a team of architectural historians surveyed more than 250 properties in a neighborhood that is believed to contain the oldest concentration of pre-Civil War urban workers' housing in the State of New Jersey.  This award recognizes Hunter Research for its outstanding achievement in preservation planning.
