As part of an ongoing series highlighting Trenton’s local businesses, The City of Trenton met up with one of Trenton’s oldest businesses: The Home Rubber Company, which has been serving Trenton in the same building, 31 Wolverton Street, since its opening in 1881. This year, they are celebrating their 140th year in the capital city.
