As the centre of America's silk industry, Paterson, New Jersey, is known as 'Silk City, USA'. The silk industry there was founded by a Bollington man, John Ryle in 1839, and hundreds of families emigrated from Macclesfield to Paterson.

The exhibition explains how all of this came about and details some of the men and women who made the journey to start a new life in America.
