Dixon Mills History

Dixon Mills in Jersey City stands as a remarkable transformation of the historic Joseph Dixon Crucible Company site into a contemporary condominium complex. Established in 1847, the original factory, initially based in Salem, Massachusetts, was relocated by Joseph Dixon to Jersey City's Van Vorst Park neighborhood. For decades, it thrived as a manufacturing hub for various products, including crucibles, pencils, crayons, stove polish, and lubricants. This rich industrial legacy is honored within the complex through a dedicated museum in the lobby, showcasing artifacts and chronicling the site's evolution.

The transition from an industrial powerhouse to a residential haven began in the mid-1980s, with the preservation of the original structures, including the distinctive bridges connecting the buildings. This careful conversion process culminated in the early 2000s, turning the apartments into luxurious condos, blending historical charm with modern living demands. Dixon Mills is particularly noted for the uniqueness of each condo, offering a range of floor plans from studios to expansive triplexes, each infused with distinctive features like high ceilings, industrial finishes, exposed brick, and open, loft-style living spaces. The transformation of Dixon Mills from a pencil factory to a residential complex encapsulates a blend of Jersey City's industrial past with contemporary urban lifestyle, making it a unique place to call home.

What Residents Think About Dixon Mills

"I've lived in downtown Jersey City for 5 years, and in Dixon Mills for 3. I'm very happy with the neighborhood and it's recent renaissance. For those who are unfamiliar, DM exists a short walking distance from the Grove Street PATH in the quaint-yet-vibrant Van Vorst neighborhood. The neighborhood is a mix of artists, dog-lovers, stroller-pushers, foodies, and a few hold-overs from JC's grittier past. The Dixon Mills complex is a well-known historic landmark of sorts in the area. It has a real "wow" factor, given it's various skybridges, old fashioned smoke stacks, and the greenhouse-style roof in the atrium building. What appeals to me about DM is that the units all have very tall ceilings, hard wood floors, and lots of character (exposed brick, unique layouts). There are many perks to living here, including a lifestyle center (gym classes sauna movie room basketball court), a free shuttle that takes you to the PATH in case you're lazy, and a concierge (hands packages, dry cleaning, etc). But the biggest perk of all is the neighbors. It's a good crew of folks who live here -- a real community." - [Source]
