The town of Newark owes its establishment to the Scots-Irish and Welsh settling in Colonial America.

Two old Indian trails that merged near two creeks turning toward the Delaware River became a stopping point for people headed to Chesapeake Bay and Virginia. The town built at these crossroads was recognized by King George II after it had grown by way of stream-powered sawmills and bountiful wheat and corn harvests.

A grammar school that was originally founded in Pennsylvania moved to Newark in 1765, and this academy graduated 3 signers of the Declaration of Independence.
