In addition to present-dayLinden, the city included what is now Roselle, Winfield Park, and a portion of Cranford.The borough of Linden emerged from the center of the township as an island municipality in 1882. The two communities consolidated on April 3, 1924, and officially became a city on January 1, 1925. As the twenty-first century approaches, so does the 75th anniversary of the city of Linden.
