Town History

The territory that would become Clark was originally a part of several of the early villages of the State and of Union County, but it was in 1858 after the village of Rahway incorporated itself into a city, that present-day Clark officially became a community. The City of Rahway designated this land as the 5th Ward of Rahway. Clark was incorporated as a township on March 23, 1864, from portions of Rahway. The Township was named for Abraham Clark, a signer of the Declaration of Independence. Portions of the township were taken to form Cranford and Winfield Townships.
