Passaic County is located in northeastern New Jersey, with its county seat in Paterson. It was created on February 7, 1837, from portions of both Bergen County and Essex County. The county is named after the Passaic River, which originates in Sussex County and flows through Passaic County before emptying into Newark Bay. The name Passaic is derived from a Native American word meaning "valley" or "where the river passes through the valley."

Passaic County is known for its rich industrial history, particularly in the city of Paterson. In the early 1800s, Paterson emerged as a leading center for manufacturing, fueled by the power of the Great Falls of the Passaic River. Alexander Hamilton played a significant role in developing Paterson as an industrial center, establishing the Society for the Establishment of Useful Manufactures (S.U.M.) in 1791 to stimulate economic growth in the area.

During its industrial heyday, the county's major industries included textiles, silk, locomotive production, and firearms. The industrial boom attracted a diverse population to the area, including Irish, German, Italian, and Eastern European immigrants who contributed to the rich cultural fabric of the county.

Today, Passaic County is known for its natural beauty, diverse communities, and historical significance. One fun fact about this region is that the Great Falls of the Passaic River, located in Paterson, is the second-largest waterfall by volume east of the Mississippi River in the United States, after Niagara Falls. The Great Falls were designated as a National Historical Park in 2011, showcasing the significant role they played in the development of the region's industrial prowess.
