Gibbsboro, NJ is an interesting place, it has always been centered about its water. Something Hutchinson’s knows a lot about. We can send a qualified plumber to care for the HVAC needs of Gibbsboro’s residents. This town is over three hundred years old and had the reputation for having the best water supply East of the Mississippi.
It boasted five streams and six lakes at its founding in 1713. The five streams start in Gibbsboro, and formed the top of Cooper River, which flows to the Delaware River. In a unique layout of this land, other water will flow towards the Atlantic Ocean, because this area is a turning point for the inner and outer coastal plains.
All of this flowing water towards both directions, in a heavily wooded forest, made Gibbsboro a perfect place to build grist mills. John Clement bought such a mill from the Gibbs family in 1812 and named the town after their legacy. Gibbsboro continued this way until 1852, when John Lucas and Joseph Foster created a new paint company on the Silver Lake. “Gibbsboro White Lead, Zinc and Color Works”, later known as the Lucas Paint Company.
The Lucas Paint Company made many revolutionary innovations to the paint industry. They were known for their shades of green and their ready mixed convenience. The processes developed by Lucas revolutionized the way paint was sold. The company grew so rapidly, it had its own train service and grew to seven hundred employees, making Gibbsboro an industrial center.
After over 80 years of innovation, the Lucas Paint Company was officially dissolved in 1956 though their legacy lives on due to the company’s outstanding reputation. It was bought and run as a Sherwin-Williams paint and varnish manufacturing plant until closing in the 1978.
