Significance: Several of the buildings in the complex forming the Rogers Locomotive and Machine Works were originally constructed in the 1830's for the manufacture of textiles and textile machinery, and of paper. In the period from 1854-1866, properties on the upper raceway were acquired by Rogers for expansion in order to meet the increasing demand for steam locomotives and other heavy equipment. The development of this factory complex reflects the growth of increasingly heavy manufacturing in the Paterson area as the nineteenth century progressed.
