City of New Brunswick, New Jersey / Packard & Butler Lith. Philada.

Reproduction view map of New Brunswick, Middlesex County, New Jersey drawn and published by Packard & Butler Lithographers in 1880. The township of New Brunswick emerged in the early 1700's as a trading center along the Raritan River. It is home to Rutgers University. The university, first called "Queen's College" was founded in 1766 and instruction started in 1771 with one teacher holding classes at a local tavern. Classes were held in taverns, boarding houses and at the College Hall Building until the Queen's College Building was completed in 1808. The school closed its doors after the War of 1812 but re-opened in 1825 using its new name honoring Revolutionary War hero and philanthropist Colonel Henry Rutgers. The college created their New Jersey Agricultural Experiment Station in the year of this map's publishing.

Robert Wood Johnson began his popular Johnson & Johnson Company in New Brunswick in the 1870's as "Seabury & Johnson". In 1880, when Johnson was unable to add his brother James into the firm, he sold his shares of the firm to Seabury. Later, when Seabury couldn't keep up his payments to Johnson, the company control was again in the hands of Johnson, who with his brother and then his sons, molded the pharmaceutical giant to its current heights.

The map from 1880 shows New Brunswick in the year that Robert Wood Johnson married his first wife Ellen Cutler. It includes buildings, bridges, canal and clearly labeled street names.
