Kenilworth, NJ Neighborhood Information

Neighborhood Facts

Town History

In the late 1890's, the New Orange Industrial Association purchased some farms in portions of Cranford and Union and divided them into building lots. The lots were sold through illustrated brochures that pictured beautiful parks, lakes, an opera house, and yacht clubs. Because New Orange was often confused with one of the Essex County Oranges, the community adopted the name Kenilworth when it was created as a borough in 1907.
