History of Moorestown, NJ
Moorestown originated as a Quaker town. It is not certain when the
first white settlers came here, but it was in 1682 that the road
from Burlington to Salem, passing through what is now Moorestown,
was laid out. Dr. John Rodman bought 500 acres of land in 1686 in
what is now the western section of Moorestown, but was called Rodmantown
at that time. What is now the east part of Moorestown was called
Chestertown. The name Moorestown didn't come into use until the
mid 1800's, named after Moore's Tavern. The first meetinghouse was
built out of logs in 1700, but burned down in 1720. Another meetinghouse
was built out of stone, but was erected in 1802 for a burial site.
Until 1867, the only form of transportation from Moorestown to Philadelphia,
Pennsylvania was stagecoach, until a railroad was built. Before
this, Coles Hotel was a major resting point. The Historical Society
of Moorestown was formed in 1969. Moorestown today remains alcohol
Today, as one walks
along Main Street from the Friends’ School west past the old
Town Hall, it is hard to believe that the ridge that the road (formerly
The King’s Highway) follows was once occupied with the wigwams
of the Lenni Lenape Native Americans. Two fine springs, one to the
west (off Main Street before reaching the Perkins Center for the
Arts) and one to the east (off North Stanwick Road) were attractive
to Native Americans and traders alike. Movers in Moorestown
