Summary

Significance: The Dundee Canal Industrial Historic District (DCIHD) is an approximately 1.2-mile-long swath of late-19th- and early-20th-century industrial and industrial-related resources that cuts through the former manufacturing core of the New Jersey cities of Passaic and Clifton. Arrayed along the spine of the mid-19th-century Dundee Canal, it is composed of seven components, some of which in turn have multiple elements. These seven components are: the Dundee Canal; the Acquackanonk Water Company Site; the Andrew McLean Company Textile Mill; the Botany Worsted Mills Historic District; the (site of) 95-97 Dayton Avenue; the Botany Mills Lanolin Retrieval Site; and the Dundee Textile Company Mill. The New Jersey State Historic Preservation Officer determined in 1988 that the DCIHD was eligible for listing in the National Register. The Botany Worsted Mills Historic District was listed in the National Register in 1990. The DCIHD is significant as a surviving, intact, interconnected component of the textile-industry-related landscape that defined Passaic, Clifton, and surrounding communities from the late 19th through the mid-20th centuries.
