Evesham Township is a township in Burlington County, New Jersey, United States. As of the 2010 United States Census, the township's population was 45,538,[7][8][9] reflecting an increase of 3,263 (+7.7%) from the 42,275 counted in the 2000 Census, which had in turn increased by 6,966 (+19.7%) from the 35,309 counted in the 1990 Census.[15]

Evesham Township dates back to November 6, 1688, when it was formed as Eversham, with an "R" in the middle of the name that was lost in subsequent years. It was incorporated by an Act of the New Jersey Legislature on February 21, 1798, as one of New Jersey's original group of 104 townships. Portions of the township were taken to form Washington Township (November 19, 1802), Medford Township (March 1, 1847) and Mount Laurel Township (March 7, 1872).[16]

Geography[edit]

Evesham Township is located at 39°51′24″N 74°54′03″W / 39.856677°N 74.90081°W / 39.856677; -74.90081 (39.856677,-74.90081). According to the United States Census Bureau, the township had a total area of 29.708 square miles (76.942 km2), of which, 29.284 square miles (75.845 km2) of it was land and 0.424 square miles (1.097 km2) of it (1.43%) was water.[17][1]

The township borders Mount Laurel Township, Medford Township, and Camden County.

The township is one of 56 South Jersey municipalities that are included within the New Jersey Pinelands National Reserve, a protected natural area of unique ecology covering 1,100,000 acres (450,000 ha), that has been classified as a United States Biosphere Reserve and established by Congress in 1978 as the nation's first National Reserve.[22] Part of the township is included in the state-designated Pinelands Area, which includes portions of Burlington County, along with areas in Atlantic, Camden, Cape May, Cumberland, Gloucester and Ocean counties.[23]

History[edit]

The area now known as Evesham Township was originally settled by Quakers in 1672. The township was named either for the town of the same name in England, or for prominent English settler Thomas Eves.[21]

The Township was substantially larger than it is today, originally including what are now Mount Laurel, Medford, Lumberton, Hainesport, Shamong, and Washington Townships. The South Branch of the Rancocas on the East Side and Cropwell Creek on the West Side bound this area. Evesham Township was eventually incorporated in 1692 as one of the thirteen Townships in Burlington County. In 1802, a tract was cut off for Washington Township; in 1847, the Township was then divided in half, with the eastern half becoming Medford Township; and in 1872, Evesham was divided again, for the last time, with the northern part becoming Mount Laurel Township.[16]

Marlton is a name commonly associated and interchangeable with the name Evesham,[21] derived from the census designated place within Evesham. The name Marlton came about in the early 19th century and stems from the name "Marl." Marl is a naturally occurring mixture of green clay with remnants of shells that was used as a fertilizer, like manure. Its discovery helped local commerce and fueled the first "building boom", which took place in the 1830s and 1840s. Marl continued to be mined locally until 1930, when the pits were finally closed. Today one is known as the Benicia recycling center.

The Marlton area was recognized as a village in 1758. The village was named Marlton in 1845. The same year the "Evesham" Post Office and the "Evesham" Baptist Church both had their names changed to "Marlton" Post Office and the "Marlton" Baptist Church. The names remain the same today. Most maps and directional signs refer to Marlton instead of Evesham. The historic village, Olde Marlton, remains mostly intact and is a locally regulated Historic District.[38] Full-time police services began in 1966.

Evesham remained mostly unchanged until the 1950s, when developers began buying farms and building the Township's first housing developments. Today, no significant farmland remains.

In 1955, the United States Army opened the PH-32 Nike Ajax facility on Tomlinson Mill Road. This battery was one of twelve used to shield Philadelphia, Pennsylvania from aerial assault during the Cold War.[39] The base was decommissioned in the mid-1960s and used for various functions, including a civil defense center. The site of the base is now a housing development which was built in the mid-1990s.

Government[edit]

Local government[edit]

Evesham Township operates within the Faulkner Act under the Council-Manager plan 11 form of municipal government, as implemented as of July 1, 1983, based on the recommendations of a Charter Study Commission.[40] The township had first switched to the Council-Manager Plan B of the Faulkner Act on July 1, 1969 to replace the township committee government.[41] The government consists of a Mayor and a four-member Township Council, with all positions elected at-large in elections held every other year. The Mayor is elected directly by the voters. Members are elected in partisan elections to serve four-year terms of office on a staggered basis, with two council seats up for vote in even years as part of the November general election.[5][42]

As of 2013, the Mayor of Evesham Township is Republican Randy Brown, whose term of office ends December 31, 2014. Members of the Evesham Township Council are Deputy Mayor Ken D'Andrea (R, 2016), Debbie Hackman (R, 2014), Robert DiEnna (R, 2016) and Steve Zeuli (R, 2014).[43][44][45][46][47]

Deputy Mayor Joe Howarth resigned from the council in December 2011 in advance of taking a seat on the Burlington County Board of Chosen Freeholders, with his council seat filled until November 2012 chosen from among prospective candidates selected by the local Republican committee.[48] Ken D'Andrea[49] was selected to fill Howarth's vacancy, while Robert DiEnna was chosen in September 2013 to fill the vacancy of Kurt Croft following his resignation.[45][50]

On May 12, 2009, Evesham held municipal elections in which Republicans Kurt Croft, Debbie Hackman and Joe Howarth were elected, with the three taking office on July 1, 2009, and giving Republicans control of the council.[51]

On March 6, 2010, Democrat Mayor Randy Brown announced he was switching parties to become a Republican, citing philosophical disagreements. That same year, he endorsed Jon Runyan, a Republican for Congress.[52]

In 2010, the Republican slate swept the township's first partisan elections, with Mayor Randy Brown and Councilmember Debbie Hackman winning re-election along with newcomer Steve Zeuli.[53]

Federal, state and county representation[edit]

Evesham Township is located in the 3rd Congressional District[54] and is part of New Jersey's 8th state legislative district.[8][55][56]

For the 2004-15 Session, the 8th District of the New Jersey Legislature is represented in the State Senate by Dawn Marie Addiego (R, Evesham Township) and in the General Assembly by Christopher J. Brown (R, Evesham Township) and Maria Rodriguez-Gregg (R, Evesham Township).[62] The Governor of New Jersey is Chris Christie (R, Mendham Township).[63] The Lieutenant Governor of New Jersey is Kim Guadagno (R, Monmouth Beach).[64]

Burlington County is governed by a Board of chosen freeholders, whose five members are elected at-large to three-year terms of office on a staggered basis, with either one or two seats coming up for election each year.[65] The board choose a director and deputy director from among its seven members at an annual reorganization meeting held in January.[65] As of 2013, Burlington County's Freeholders are Freeholder Director Joseph B. Donnelly (R, 2013; Cinnaminson Township),[66] Deputy Director Leah Arter (R, 2014; Moorestown Township),[67] Aimee Belgard (D, 2015; Edgewater Park Township),[68] Joseph Howarth (R, 2014; Evesham Township)[69] and Joanne Schwartz (D, 2015; Southampton Township).[70][65]

The Evesham Township School District serves students in pre-Kindergarten through eighth grade.

In Evesham, public school students in ninth through twelfth grades attend Cherokee High School, which opened a 210,000-square-foot (20,000 m2) addition in September 2001.[82] The school is part of the Lenape Regional High School District, which also serves students from Medford Lakes, Medford Township, Mount Laurel Township, Shamong Township, Southampton Township, Tabernacle Township and Woodland Township.[83]

Students from Evesham Township, and from all of Burlington County, are eligible to attend the Burlington County Institute of Technology, a countywide public school district that serves the vocational and technical education needs of students at the high school and post-secondary level at its campuses in Medford and Westampton Township.[84]
