The neighborhood is named for Alfred Cramer who, in the late 19th century, purchased farmland in what was then Stockton Township. He divided the land into building lots which he sold at prices affordable to the middle class. River Avenue is the primary commercial strip running through the neighborhood, as it has been from the earliest times. Early settlers in Cramer Hill included many German-Americans.
