Browns Mills Junction is an unincorporated community located within Pemberton Township in Burlington County, New Jersey, United States.[2] The site, located about 1.6 miles (2.6 km) southwest of downtown Browns Mills, is located at the crossing of Junction Road (County Route 645) and the Philadelphia and Long Branch Railway, later a part of the Pennsylvania Railroad. It was the site of a train station named Browns Mills in-the-Pines where a short branch connected the main line to Browns Mills.[3] The settlement features a few houses along Junction Road and Mount Misery Road (also a part of CR 645 west of Junction Road) but is otherwise very forested as a part of the New Jersey Pine Barrens.[4]
