The Cranford Historical Society will proudly be marching in the Memorial Day Parade again this year. Our theme this year is “Preserving the Past for The Future.” As always, we will have Society member, Bob Calvano and his 1914 Overland Car “Sarah Ann” and Dreyer Farms’ tractor pulling the replica of the Crane-Phillips House Museum. The parade will begin by the Cranford Community Center on Walnut Avenue and end with services at Memorial Park on Springfield Avenue.
Have you ever wanted to see what is inside the Hanson House? If so, join us on Sunday, June 2nd at 2pm when the Society will open its doors to the public to enjoy a tour of the building. After hearing a brief history of Hanson House you will learn about the lives of the Cranford artists Leslie and Alice Crump and will view the Society’s collection of their art. You will then be taken on a tour of the Society’s collections of costumes by its curator. Afterward, you will have the opportunity to visit the Fridlington Room where research into the history of Cranford and its homes takes place. Don’t miss this interesting event.
Admission is free and open to the public. Please RSVP by Thursday, May 30th 2019.
Tour will begin at 2:15pm.
