Paterson Great Falls: From Power to Park. The Paterson Great Falls has dual, sometimes conflicting, identities. The first, as a natural wonder, a scenic beauty and a tourist attraction. The second, as a source of power, providing the energy needed by the industries that developed into the City of Paterson. Paterson Great Falls: From Power to Park explores the waterfall’s long journey from a natural resource and industrial tool to becoming a protected park.
