Cranbury is both a township and an unincorporated community within the township, located in Middlesex County, New Jersey, although the township and the census designated place are separate entities. The earliest reports of settlements in the area go back to 1698, and a home in Cranbury was used by Alexander Hamilton and the Marquis de Lafayette as a headquarters during the Revolutionary War, and were visited by George Washington in 1778. The early spelling of the community was Cranberry, which was changed in 1869.
