History

the text in this section is copied from an article in Wikipedia

Bridgeport, along with Swedesboro, was one of only two settlements established in New Jersey as a part of the New Sweden colony, the fort at Nya Elfsborg having been abandoned. It was originally called New Stockholm, but the name was changed at a later date.


After the 2001 anthrax attacks, a facility was set up in Bridgeport using a continuous wave accelerator called a Rhodotron from the Belgian company, IBA to irradiate federal mail.
