Overview

Few New Jersey towns have retained as much nineteenth-century charm as Cranbury. Set in agriculturally rich Middlesex County, Cranbury is known for its shuttered white-clapboard houses, lovely shaded streets, picket fences, and tranquil lake. First settled in 1697, Cranbury came of age more than one hundred years later when it developed into a bustling center with a gristmill, a sawmill, tanneries, blacksmith shops, and other business enterprises typical of small-town America. These images are fascinating: most of them have never before been published, and many of them were donated from family albums and collections. The recollections of many living residents have been included as well, and the stories, anecdotes, and memories breathe life into the images of a by-gone era. The result is a remarkable visual history, both informative and entertaining, that serves to preserve and celebrate Cranbury’s proud heritage. Cranbury is a journey into the past that will thrill resident and visitor, young and old alike.
