Nestled between Cranford and Westfield, Garwood was established in 1903 after Samuel Garwood, a former president of the Central Railway of New Jersey, bought tracts of land in those towns.
The borough was for a long time a home to industry, but today is shifting towards an office and retail-based economy similar to its neighboring towns. Some of the old industrial factories are still prominent on Garwood's main streets.
With its pleasant streets and small-town feel, the borough continues to provide idyllic living conditions for its small, tight-knit population.
Garwood is home to approximately 4,200 residents who reside in its .71 square miles.
