About the event

Join Preservation NJ via Zoom on September 19th at 7PM as we sit down with the City of Paterson Historic Preservation Commission and members of the development team to share in the story of restoring Hinchliffe Stadium. The Stadium was completed in 1932 and sits on a dramatic escarpment above Paterson's National Historic Landmark Great Falls, surrounded by the city's national landmark historic district, the first planned industrial settlement in the nation. Hinchliffe stadium is known for hosting track and field, football, baseball, entertainment events, and auto and motorcycle racing. It is one of only a handful of stadiums surviving nationally that once played host to significant Negro league baseball during America's Jim Crow era. The stadium was designated a National Historic Landmark in March 2013 and a Paterson Historic Landmark in May 2013. In December 2014, Congress passed legislation to include the stadium in the Great Falls National Landmark District.

This event is an installment of our series, "Talks with Our Ten Most," where we share updates -- and lessons learned -- from past PNJ Ten Most Endangered Sites. Hinchliffe Stadium was listed in 1997. 

This program is free and open to all.
