At the crossroads of friendship and history

Fanwood was founded in 1895 around the Central Railroad of New Jersey. The old Fanwood train station, built in 1874, stands as the oldest original train station in Union County and remains the center of many community activities.

“Sheelen’s Crossing” is a bridge that was named after Charles J. Sheelen, Jr. and his family. Agustus Sheelen worked at the first cracker-barrel type grocery store in Fanwood which served many of the commuters coming back from work in New York City and became a key meeting point for the community of Fanwood.

We named our bar “Sheelen’s Crossing” to honor the Sheelen’s and in the hope that our establishment will become a vital and welcoming door within the Fanwood community and greater Westfield area. Welcome!
