Botto House and American Labor Museum
The Industrial Workers of the World met at this home during the Paterson Silk Strikes of 1913. As strikes and gatherings were outlawed in Paterson, the Botto family in Haldeon were sympathetic and allowed as many as 15,000 people to gather and protest for labor rights. Today, the house serves as the home of the American Labor Museum. The museum offers tours of the home, exhibits about the IWW and the Paterson Silk Strike, special rotating exhibits related to various labor organizations and historical themes, and educational programs related to labor history.
