Cranford Walking Tour Inaugurates Historic QR Code Signs

On Sunday, May 22 at 2 p.m., the Cranford Historic Preservation Advisory Board (HPAB) will conduct a walking tour of historic sites with new QR (quick response) codes. The tour will also feature additional facts about the downtown and surrounding areas.

Participants will meet in front of the First Baptist Church of Cranford at 100 High Street, which is the first site on the tour. There is a suggested fee of $5, payable in cash or check (made payable to Cranford Historic Preservation Advisory Board or Cranford HPAB) to help fund its work.

HPAB is a volunteer advisory board appointed by the Cranford Township Committee. Its primary purpose is to help residents recognize the significance of noteworthy historic buildings, steetscapes, and districts to emphasize the importance of preserving these resources so they can be enjoyed by current and future generations. Preserving historic buildings, streetscapes, and districts helps the architectural and aesthetic character of Cranford and its neighborhoods remain intact.

Some of the things that HPAB does to accomplish its goals includes researching properties and districts and applying for Certificates of Eligibility for inclusion on the State and National Historic Registers as well as seeking to have properties and districts designated as historic by the Township.
