Statement of Significance (as of designation - December 17, 1982):
On January 27, 1913, 800 workers at one of the largest silk mills in the silk manufacturing capital of the country walked off the job, in a dispute over job security, low wages, long hours, and poor working conditions. Soon, 25,000 men, women, and children who worked in the mills also rebelled. From the balcony of this two-story rectangular block stone house, leaders of the Industrial Workers of the World (IWW, the "Wobblies") rallied workers during the Paterson Silk Strike (1913), a salient event in the American labor movement.
