Newark was founded in 1666 by Connecticut Puritans led by Robert Treat, making it the third-oldest major city in the United States, after Boston and New York, though it is not the third-oldest settlement.
In 1880, Newark's population stood at 136,508; in 1890 at 181,830; in 1900 at 246,070; and in 1910 at 347,000, a jump of 200,000 in three decades.(Cunningham, 201) As Newark's population approached a half million in the 1920s, the city's potential seemed limitless.
Newark was bustling in the early to mid-20th century.
