Cranberry Township is a township in Butler County in the U.S. state of Pennsylvania. It is classified as a Second Class Township and follows the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania Second Class Township Code. The population was 28,098 as of the 2010 census.
Cranberry Township was founded in 1804. It is not to be confused with Cranberry Township in Venango County, formerly Fairfield Township (founded 1806), which is located only 60 miles (97 km) away.
The most populated section of the township was originally known as Criders Corners. “Criders Corners” referred to the junction of the old Perry Highway (now Dutilh Road) and the Old Mars-Criders Road (now bypassed in favor of Pennsylvania Route 228). The crossroads was named for Jacob Crider (1823–1902), a trustee of Dutilh Methodist Church, who purchased 50 acres (200,000 m2) of land there in 1871. The township’s current name is derived from the cranberry bogs which could be found in the area in days past. The township also includes part of the considerably smaller former town of Ogle, and other small areas formerly known as Fernway and Fox Run.
