Evesham Township, New Jersey (Images of America Series) by John S. Flack

Established in 1688, Evesham Township was settled by members of the Society of Friends, also known as Quakers, who found it to be a place where they could worship freely. Many homes of the original settlers as well as Quaker meetinghouses still stand today. Evesham is considered one of the crossroads of the Revolutionary War. One of the earliest industries was the mining of marl—a greensand clay that was used as a fertilizer. From its beginning, however, Evesham’s main industry was agriculture. Using vintage photographs and historic information, Evesham Township explores the township’s transformation into the suburban community it is today. These photographs illustrate how the early settlers and those who followed lived and worked and show how the area progressed and grew. The township has seen tremendous growth but is still only about one quarter of its original size. Images and captions show fertile farmland becoming neighborhoods, attracting many people to Evesham and stimulating growth.
