Welcome to Moorestown
Just fourteen miles outside of Philadelphia lies one of New Jersey’s most luxurious and beautiful communities. Filled with small-town charm, picturesque scenery, and a welcoming community, Moorestown has been one of the area’s most desirable locations for generations.
Originally a rural, agricultural community, Moorestown has played an interesting role throughout history, ranging from its first settlers in 1682 through the Revolutionary and Civil War and industrial prosperity. However, while the town grew tremendously throughout the late 1800s and early 1900s, it maintained its quirky personality and bucolic charms—which are some of its most attractive features even today.
Nowadays, the town is known for its historic beauty, vibrant town center, and sense of community that permeates every neighborhood. This family-friendly atmosphere is another reason why it has been continuously voted one of the top places to live in Southern New Jersey.
