Raritan Arsenal (former) – Edison NJ

Description

The federal Works Progress Administration (WPA) conducted millions of dollars (not even adjusted for inflation) of improvement and development work at the former Raritan Arsenal in Edison, New Jersey. Work involved the construction and improvement of facilities and various utilities, including railroad tracks and docks.

A cataloguing of these projects was undertaken by the DoD in its Heritage Assessment, cited below.
