Cranford High School – Cranford NJ

Description

In the mid 1930s the new Cranford High School building was constructed with assistance from the Federal Public Works Administration (PWA). In their photographic history of Cranford, New Jersey, Robert Fridlington and Lawrence Fuhro tell us that the high school building was dedicated on January 3, 1938. At the time, it was a six year school serving seventh through twelfth graders. In the words of Fridlington and Fuhro, “[t]he forty-nine-classroom building cost $850,000, nearly half the amount coming from the New Deal’s Public Works Administration.” (1996: 98)
