On March 1, some of our friends from Thomas Edison National Historical Park came over and assembled and installed our very first wayside exhibit for us. It was a chilly day, but it didn't take them long. Thanks guys!


What is a wayside exhibit?

Located outdoors, it is a sign that helps visitors understand what they are seeing. The wayside can answer visitors' questions and explain elements of the view before them. It can also orient visitors to their surroundings and help them decide where to go or what to do next.

The wayside exhibit at Overlook Park will illustrate the important role the Great Falls, and Paterson, have played in the development of American industry for over 200 years.
