Overview

Situated along the Delaware Bay and first inhabited by the Lenape Indians, Cumberland County has a rich agricultural and industrial history. After the Revolution, Swedish, Danish and English immigrants were soon joined by others from across Europe and around the world. The Cohansey and Maurice Rivers flow through the county, uniting its cities and towns. They have distinguished histories of their own—Greenwich was a major port of entry in colonial America; Port Norris was the “oyster capital of the world” in the 1800s; and Seabrook Farms was the country’s biggest vegetable factory. In 2013, the county celebrates its 265th anniversary. Join the people of Bridgeton, Millville, Vineland and the rest of Cumberland County to explore the stories from its past.
