Cherry Hill, NJ
The township of Cherry Hill, New Jersey, lies just 8 miles southeast of Philadelphia, but the city has an small-town ambience all its own. From its many parks to its great schools, the close-knit community has worked hard to make Cherry Hill a wonderful place to raise a family.
Lenni-Lenape Native Americans occupied the area around modern-day Cherry Hill long before Quaker settlers from England arrived in the late 17th century. The first settlement was called Colestown, but the name was changed to Delaware Township in 1844 when Camden County was created. Since another community in New Jersey was also called Delaware Township, the postal service eventually demanded that the town make a change, and the name “Cherry Hill” was officially adopted in 1961.
As of 2010, the population of Cherry Hill was 71,045, making it the second largest city in Camden County. Around 27,000 households live within the city’s 24 square miles of land. Approximately 31 percent of households include children under the age of 18, and the average family size is 3.12 people. The estimated median home value in 2009 was $314,613, and the median household income was $88,183.
Cherry Hill Township is best known as the home of one of the first enclosed malls built on the East Coast. The Cherry Hill Mall is not only a shopping and dining destination but the place where many community events are held as well. Other standout attractions in Cherry Hill include:
- The Garden State Discovery Museum features dozens of hands-on exhibits designed to appeal to children from infants to elementary school ages.
- Built in 1753, the Historic Croft Farm in now home to the Cherry Hill Arts Center, which produces concerts, seminars and community art classes.
- Visitors can experience what life was like on a 19th-century farm at the Barclay Farmstead Museum, a 32-acre site that includes original structures and working gardens.
