Welcoming Message from Our Mayor

"As Mayor, let me welcome you to this “HomeTown Tribute” for our Township of Cranford, New Jersey. I think, as you browse through the 12 separate ‘Feature Sections, you’ll see the unique history and heritage of our Town. Among several of the Sections, there are photos of our Mayors going back to our first in 1871, those of our Police and Fire Chiefs for over 100 years, and 130 + years worth of photos showing the growth of our Town, as well as, one of the Sections honoring our Town’s 'Fallen Heroes'.

And, over the years to come, as current and former residents and even our former mayors continue to add more and more of their memories and photos of Cranford as it is today, and from throughout the years, our Town’s rich history and heritage will continue to grow and be shown on this "HomeTown Tribute" for all of those future visitors to this site."
