Trenton, NJ - the state capitol of New Jersey.  This city was officially formed in 1719 and briefly served as the capitol of the United States.  A huge sign on the Lower Free Bridge proclaims “Trenton Makes-The World Takes”-in homage of its manufacturing base.  It is well known for being a pottery and porcelain center (Lenox, Boehm, Cybis) and the home of John Roebling (maker of the Brooklyn Bridge).  Thomas Maddock, another ceramic maker, invented the flush mechanism for the toilet.  Betcha Didn’t Know That!
