Cranford Municipal Buildings -  2002-2004 - Click to Enlarge, Photo by Consultwebs.comUnion County, New Jersey, a 103 sq. mi. area just 15 miles from midtown Manhattan, claims a population of its own as 522,541 (2000 Census). Beautiful Elizabeth is the county seat for their County Manager form of government consisting of a Board of Chosen Freeholders (9 members elected to 3-year terms with 3 Freeholders running for election each year). The Board appoints the County Manager to administer the day-to-day operation of county government, which consists of 6 major departments and Runnells Specialized Hospital in Berkeley Heights.  

Three subtribes of the Leni Lenape, (Algonquin for "men among men") were the inhabitants between the Hudson and Delaware Rivers at the arrival of the colonists. The Unami (Turtle tribe) occupied what is now known as Union County. In 1651, Dutch colonists purchased from Algonquin Indians all of the land lying between the Raritan River and the Passaic and extending indefinitely inland. They were unsuccessful in their settlement and in 1664, the English colonized what is now Union County. Union County and Essex County were separated in 1857. 

In 1899, the New Jersey legislature passed acts making it economically advantageous for the communities to incorporate. Much of Union County took advantage of this opportunity.

Boasting live performances and an original Wurlitzer organ of seven ranks, 500 pipes, and percussion, it has been played regularly since the 1960's restoration, and has been recorded by celebrity organists. Enormous sound and small size have earned it the name of the "Biggest Little Wurlitzer".
