Formed from portions of Clark and Linden, Winfield was incorporated as a township in 1941. Also known as Winfield Park, the township is in Union County, bordered to the east and north by Linden, and to the south and west by Clark. The Rahway River flows outside the townsite. The township grew out of the Winfield Park Mutual Ownership Defense Housing Project, a 700-unit development of 254 buildings that were planned for the defense workers of the Kearny, New Jersey shipyards, the last of eight similar projects by the Federal Works Agency, and the only defense housing project to have been established as a separate municipality.
