Significance: The Danforth site is representative of many of the manufacturing facilities in Paterson. First built upon in the early years of the nineteenth century, the mill lots housed a number of textile processing plants, and served, at least in part, as a machine shop at one time. With the rise of the railways in the second half of the century, the lots were consolidated under one owner, new buildings constructed, and heavier industry, in this case the manufacture of steam locomotives, dominated.
