Orange, New Jersey

Orange is both a city and a township in Essex County, New Jersey. Officially known as the "City of Orange Township," Orange is a suburb of Newark and has a population of just over 30,100. Orange was originally founded as part of Newark, and was incorporated as a separate township in 1806. Once known for its hat making and breweries, Orange has experienced manufacturing and population decline. The city's top employment sectors are healthcare, education and financial services. In recent years, Orange has focused on revitalizing downtown retail districts.

Orange was incorporated as a city in 1860, with several smaller communities splintering off in the next few years. Orange's first steam railroad arrived in 1837, increasing access to Newark and Pennsylvania. Early industries included tanning and leather goods. Hat making was a major industry by 1892, with 21 hat makers, including Stephen Stetson, father of John B. Stetson, whose iconic western hats are still made today. In 1886, Thomas Edison built a new laboratory in Orange. The Edison Phonograph Works produced phonographs and wax recording cylinders in Orange from the 1890s until 1914, when the factory was destroyed in a fire. The United States Radium Corporation operated a factory in Orange from 1917 to 1926, making radioluminescent dials for watches. Many of the women who painted the dials contracted fatal radium poisoning from licking the paintbrushes to create a fine point. The company closed the Orange plant in 1927, and adopted new safety measures to prevent further harm to workers.

Orange's lengthy history of manufacturing and renovation makes asbestos exposure an ongoing concern. Workers and their loved ones who are exposed to asbestos may be at risk for malignant mesothelioma, a cancer of the lungs. Mesothelioma physicians in and around Orange are listed at the bottom of this page. Additionally, mesothelioma attorneys may be able to give guidance if you were exposed to asbestos in Orange and then diagnosed with mesothelioma.
