American Labor Museum - Botto House National Landmark


The American Labor Museum is housed in the Botto House National Landmark, a 1908 Victorian home, which belonged to silk mill worker, Pietro Botto, and his wife Maria. The Botto House was the meeting place for over 20,000 silk mill workers during the 1913 Paterson Silk Strike.The strikers called for safe working conditions, an end to child labor, and an eight-hour day. This action and others like it brought about reforms in the workplace that are broadly enjoyed by Americans today. The museum has restored period rooms, a labor and immigrant library (including books, audio and video cassettes), Old World Gardens (including a bocce court, grape arbor, root cellar and chicken coop), and changing exhibits.
