Learn more about Kenilworth
Kenilworth is a suburb of New York City incorporated as a borough by an act of the New Jersey Legislature on May 13, 1907, from portions of farms in Cranford and Union Township which were purchased by the New Orange Industrial Association and divided up into building lots for sale. The Industrial Association brought in several large industries and lured Upsala College from Brooklyn with a gift of free land for its campus.
Due to the area of New Orange being often confused with East Orange, a township in Essex County, the community adopted the name Kenilworth when it was created as a borough in 1907.
As of the 2010 United States Census, the borough’s population was 7,914, reflecting an increase of 239 (+3.1%) from the 7,675 counted in the 2000 Census, which had in turn increased by 101 (+1.3%) from the 7,574 counted in the 1990 Census.
