area Girl Scouts was the Girl Scout Cabin built on a bluff
overlooking the lake.
to see an old newspaper
clipping from the Oct. 8, 1964 issue of the Cranford Citizen and
Chronicle. Under the column for Garwood Girl Scout News is an item
about how a new Junior Troop was forming that would meet at St.

the Girl Scout Cabin at Surprise Lake."
The cabin was destroyed by fire in
1975 & St. Ann's School has since closed
