The Clark Thread Company Historic District, located at 900 Passaic Avenue, East Newark, Hudson County, New Jersey, United States, is a large mill complex. The company originally started in Newark as an offshoot of the Clark Thread Company of Paisley, Scotland[4] and then expanded into these buildings in 1875. There are 35 buildings on the 13-acre (53,000 m2) block.[3][5]

The site is now used by a variety of industrial companies.

History[edit]

In January 1867, thirty women arrived from England to work at the factory.[6]
