The settlement was named "Pointers" because it was located at the intersection of three old roads—Salem Woodstown Road (Route 45), Pointers Auburn Road (County Route 540), and Pointers Sharptown Road (County Route 620)—which "pointed" toward Salem.
The Memorial Hospital of Salem County is located in Pointers, and the "Pointers intersection" was identified in Mannington Township's 2010 Master Plan as one of two commercial districts to be developed.
