Rahway, New Jersey

Rahway, with a population of just over 27,000, is a city in Union County, New Jersey. Founded in 1664, the former manufacturing city has focused on developing its retail and cultural offerings in recent years, including restoring a 1928 vaudeville theater and its original Wurlitzer organ. Current top employers in Rahway include Merck & Company, which has been a presence in Rahway since 1903, SDI Technologies, and the Rahway Board of Education. A major renovation to the Rahway train station was completed in 2001. Rahway was briefly home to a national mint (1786-1788) which struck the first coins to bear the motto e pluribus unum.

The Rahway River, which runs from west to east through the center of the city, contributed to the early industrialization of Rahway. River and stagecoach access brought goods and travelers to Rahway. The introduction of the railroad in 1835 caused another growth spurt for Rahway, which incorporated as a city in 1858. Early products included boots, bricks, carriages and related items. The Regina Music Box Company was founded in the early 1890s, producing music boxes until about 1921. In 1907, the Wheatena Company opened a cereal factory and surrounded it with wheat fields, from which it harvested the grain for its popular cereal until the mid-1960s. The Wheatena factory was subsequently occupied by book publishers Quinn & Boden, successors to The Mershon Company, which began operations in 1897. A general decline in manufacturing after World War II has led to an increase in service-related industries in Rahway, such as finance, education and telecommunications.
