Newark, with its unique blend of history and modernity, has a story that dates back centuries. It was founded by Scots-Irish and Welsh settlers in 1694, and its official establishment came with a charter from George II of Great Britain in 1758.
Schools have played a significant role in Newark's history. The Newark Academy, founded in 1743, produced three signers of the Declaration of Independence: George Read, Thomas McKean, and James Smith. Today, schools like George Read Middle School and Thomas McKean High School bear testament to their legacy.
During the American Revolutionary War, Newark was the site of the Battle of Cooch's Bridge, where tradition holds that the Stars and Stripes were first flown in battle.
Education has always been at the heart of Newark. In 1833, Newark College was chartered, which later became Delaware College. This institution, now known as the University of Delaware, has been a cornerstone of education in Newark and beyond since 1833.
Newark's industrial heritage includes the Curtis Paper Mill, the oldest paper mill in the United States until its closure in 1997. This town saw the rise of the Chrysler Newark Assembly plant in 1951, employing thousands over the years. Notably, Bob Marley worked at the assembly plant during the 1960s.
Newark boasts a diverse landscape, with rolling hills to the north and west, flat terrain to the south and east, and a prime location just east of the Maryland state line. It's adjacent to the unincorporated community of Fair Hill and is less than one mile from the tripoint where Delaware, Maryland, and Pennsylvania meet, known as The Wedge.
For nature enthusiasts, Newark offers an abundance of public parkland, with over 12,000 acres of natural beauty. Iron Hill Park to the south, Fair Hill Natural Resources Management Area to the west (in Cecil County, Maryland), and White Clay Creek State Park and Preserve to the north provide ample opportunities for outdoor activities like hiking, mountain biking, and horseback riding.
The parks surrounding Newark offer a serene escape from the bustling city life, making it an ideal destination for outdoor enthusiasts.
