Introduction to Clark, New Jersey
This area was originally a Lenape hunting ground. European immigrants who settled here were largely dependent upon agriculture. The portion of land that came to be known as Clark was recognized as a separate community for the first time when the village of Rahway was incorporated into a city. It continued to be a part of Rahway until 1864 when residents incorporated it as an independent township and named it Clark. The name was based on Abraham Clark, who was a signer of the Declaration of Independence.
