  • History

    • The town’s history dates back to May 1666 when Connecticut settlers landed on the shores of the Passaic River. The founders purchased land, known as the Newark Settlement a few months later in July 1666. Residents who wished to farm moved westward into surrounding communities and eventually purchased land from the Lenapes and other indigenous people. Over time the Newark Settlement spanned over 60 square miles. 
    • Initially a farming and agricultural community, but because of its unique location and the building of major transportation systems (Morris Canal, Railroads and Roads) Newark attracted the industrious who built business and homes and estates close to the transportation hubs. Newark was also know to be a summer retreat for New Yorkers. 
    • Leather tannery was one of the first manufacturing businesses in the Settlement.  Manufacturing, insurance and beer brewery were some of the industries that spurred the growth of Newark.  Today Newark continues its rich tradition of attracting entrepreneurs and those looking to build better lives for themselves and their families.
