Unimaginable changes have come to Newark over the last two hundred years. Buildings have been raised and razed sometimes three or four times. Businesses have opened, closed, burned down, and relocated. Churches have been built, dissolved, moved, rebuilt and split into different congregations. Gone are the days when non-existent schools became one-roomed school houses. Newark's modern school system boasts multiple elementary, middle, high school, and adult educational facilities.$The downtown area is now on the brink of revitalization. New buildings are being built and old ones renovated. The public square is undergoing a complete transformation. New traffic patterns, larger and more attractive sidewalks with room for outdoor dining, underground wiring, benches, bike racks, and new lighting will give it a new life. This book chronicles some of the changes from the late-Victorian period through to the 21st century.
Sondra Brockway Gartner's interest in local history and photography was passed down from her father, Chance Brockway. Her goal in writing this book is to bring community awareness to the history and beautiful architecture of the many buildings in downtown Newark."
