Published on Tuesday, April 24, 2012

On Tuesday, May 1, 2012 at 7 pm the American Labor Museum/Botto House National Landmark will host the annual May Day Festival.  Plans call for instrumental and vocal performances of folk and labor music by George Mann with Marty Confurius and Alan Podber, the New Jersey Industrial Union Council (IUC) Solidarity Singers, Harmonic Insurgence choir, and Annamaria Stefanelli, lyric soprano.  Refreshments will be served, tours of the Museum will be offered and, shopping in the Museum Store will be available.  There is a $10 per person admission.

This project is funded, in part, by the Passaic County Cultural and Heritage Council at Passaic County Community College, through a grant from the New Jersey State Council on the Arts/Department of the State, a partner agency of the National Endowment for the Arts.

The American Labor Museum/Botto House National Landmark is a learning environment dedicated to the study of working people and immigrants.  With restored period rooms, a free lending library, exhibit space, Museum Store and Old World Gardens, this landmark offers a great deal to visitors.  Once the meeting place for thousands of silk mill workers during the 1913 Paterson Silk Strike, it continues to open its doors for organizations to hold meetings. 

The Museum is located at 83 Norwood Street in Haledon, New Jersey.  The museum’s hours of operation are Monday through Friday 9 am - 5 pm.  Tours are offered Wednesday through Saturday from 1 - 4 pm or by appointment.  For further information, please visit the Museum’s website www.labormuseum.net or contact the Museum at (973) 595-7953 or email labormuseum@aol.com.
