History

Dunellen grew from its start in 1867. The growth of Dunellen was directly related to the railroad station, which was originally called New Market Junction, serving the nearby village of New Market in Piscataway Township. At that time the tracks were level with North Avenue and the railroad was the Elizabethtown and Somerville Railroad. The railroad also brought industry to the area.

The large Art Color factory built in 1925 was Dunellen's principal industry and produced 10 million magazines a month. The W. F. Hall Printing Company of Chicago bought Art Color in 1931, and ran it until 1968, when it closed the plant there.[8]
