The Gallaher Mansion and Cranbury Park include wooded trails, a dog park, pavilion and a regulation disc golf course that winds in and out of the woods. Playground, picnic areas, and sculpture gardens. Surrounded by 227 acres of land, the historic Gallaher Mansion is a classic example of the Tudor Revival-style of architecture. Designed by Percy L. Fowler, the building was models after St. Paul's Episcopal Church located at the Norwalk Green. Completed in 1931, it boasts carved limestone shields, hand-painted stained glass, a heavy slate roof and cross gables that help punctuate its medieval style. With its expansive great lawn, stone terrace and sculpture gardens, the mansion provides a handsome backdrop to weddings and events. Smaller gatherings can take advantage of the French Walnut paneled meeting rooms year-round.
Built by Industrialist Edward Beach Gallaher during the Great Depression, it was both a statement of his success and a showcase of devices which likely intrigued the successful inventor. An elevator, a "intercom," call buttons and an incinerator were all party of the modern conveniences that filled the interior.
