Historic Crawford House

750 Tinton Avenue
Tinton Falls, New Jersey 


The Crawford House was built in the early to mid-19th century, and was home to four generations of the Crawford family.  The Crawfords operated their butcher business on the property for the better part of a century.  The borough acquired the house in 1999, and the Historic Preservation Commission began the process of renovating the house for public use.  After numerous grant applications and countless volunteer hours, the house was formally opened to the public in 2017. 

Boy scouts have helped preserve and interpret the site, clearing and marking both the slave burial ground associated with Lewis Morris’s 17th century iron works, and the foundations of the Crawford family slaughterhouse and butcher shop. There is a community garden on the property, where each summer volunteer gardeners grow, harvest, and sell produce to benefit the house at a weekly farm stand.

The Commission and the Friends continue to pursue improvements that will make the house accessible and educational for all of our residents.  For more information, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or visit
