Newbolds Corner is an unincorporated community located within Lumberton Township in Burlington County, New Jersey, United States.[2] The site, located at the corner of Eayrestown Road (County Route 612) and Newbolds Corner Road, was once home to a Nike missile silo which was fully demolished in late 2015.[3][4][5] Today, the west side of Eayrestown Road consists of housing developments, Lumberton Township's town hall, and a school, while the east side of the road features farmland.[6]
