History

Joseph Dixon moved his crucible factory, which was originally located in Salem, Massachusetts, to what is now the Van Vorst Park neighborhood of Historic Downtown, Jersey City, New Jersey in 1847.[3][4] Over the years the company produced crucibles, pencils, crayons, stove polish and lubricants at this site.[2] In the mid-1980s the complex was developed into residences, preserving the structures as they were, including bridges between buildings. There is a small museum with artifacts from the building and its history in the lobby of the complex.[2]
