Description


It is hard to imagine a version of Cranberry Township that was comprised of lush forests, gently rolling hills, and cascading waves of open fields. For the settlers who arrived here in the late 1700s, it was an Eden of abundant opportunity--tranquility that proved irresistible. They purchased hundreds of acres, built self-sustaining farms, and planted their roots. These pioneers had names like Graham, Garvin, Duncan, Meeder, Rowan, and Goehring, and many of their descendants still remain. While its name pays homage to the marshy bogs that produced succulent cranberries, its heritage is rooted in humble beginnings that remained largely untouched for centuries. Only with the dawn of an expanding highway system beginning in the 1950s did Cranberry Township begin its rapid transformation from farm community to suburban hot spot.
