Newark, California

The city of Newark occupies 13.9 square miles in Alameda County, California and has an estimate population of 42,500. Newark is an enclave, surrounded by the city of Fremont. It’s located across the Dumbarton Bridge from Palo Alto at the southern end of San Francisco Bay.

By the mid to late-1800s in Newark, hotels and stores were erected, as well as some of the first manufacturing industries, including a railroad car building firm operated by Thomas and Martin Carter and a foundry which later manufactured Wedgewood stoves (from the 1910s until the 1940s). These enterprises joined the production of salt, which had been underway in the Newark area since the 1850s. Acquisitions and mergers of salt production companies throughout the Bay area ultimately resulted in formation of the Arden Salt Company, predecessor to Leslie Salt Company and today as Cargill Salt which continues to operate a large salt refinery in Newark. From the early 1960s to the mid-1980s, another notable company located in Newark was Peterbilt, an American manufacturer of medium- and heavy-duty trucks. Today, Newark's economy is at the edge of Silicon Valley and shares its economic pattern.
