CD: The News' History of Passaic from the Earliest Settlement to the Present Day


"The city of Passaic is situated at the head of tide water on the Passaic River, twelve miles northwest of New York, eight miles north of Newark and four miles south of Paterson…Passaic was a notable stamping ground for the Indians. It was settled by the Dutch, became an English colony, passed through the early Indian wars, was crossed by armies during the exciting times of the Revolution, witnessed the transformation of the province of New Jersey into Statehood, and was in evidence in three of our country's wars. It is the complete story of this beautiful and interesting city-the story as gathered from musty records, and as it fell from the lips of the custodians of tradition, that is to be given in this book." The chapters of this volume cover Passaic's early settlement history, its early industrial history, the coming of the railroad, the establishment of its schools, government, churches, financial institutions, social organizations, newspapers, and manufacturing and commercial interests. This volume also includes biographical sketches and numerous illustrations of both the people and the places of importance to the city.
