NJHS offers new bus tour of industrial Newark


Beer, jewelry, paints, leather, chemicals, and electrical equipment were all major industries in Newark in the early 1900s. Made in Newark, a new bus tour sponsored by The New Jersey Historical Society, will explore some of the historic sites used (and being used) to make these and other products on Saturday, October 4, 2003 from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.

“Our collections contain thousands of photographs that show Newark as a thriving marketplace for industrial growth and economic development. This tour goes behind the scenes and helps give real perspective to that historic era,” said Shari Abelson, Adult and Special Needs Program Coordinator at The New Jersey Historical Society.

Some stops on the tour will include: Benjamin Moore Paints on Lister Avenue; P. Ballantine & Son in the Ironbound on Raymond Boulevard; Weston Electrical Instruments Co. on Frelinghuysen Avenue at Hayes Street; Tiffany and Company in North Newark on Highland Avenue; and Clark Thread Works in East Newark on McCarter Highway.

The tour will begin at 52 Park Place, Newark, NJ. Admission is $10 for members and $15 for non-members. Space is limited. Registration and pre-payment due by Friday, September 26, 2003. Call (973) 596-8500 for more information.

This tour was generously sponsored by Benjamin Moore & Company.
