  • Description

    Located just 10 miles east of Philadelphia, Moorestown, N.J., is a town of about 15 square miles with a population of about 20,000. Moorestown was founded in 1682, and like so many of its neighboring towns, it has a strong Quaker history. Moorestown has a strong community feeling, so strong, in fact, that it was voted the #1 place to live in the U.S. in Money magazine’s 2005 list of best places to live.

    Main Street in Moorestown combines historical buildings with businesses representative of residents’ needs, including banks, restaurants, professional services, cultural venues and more. In addition, there are houses of worship and historical houses, plus the recently renovated Moorestown Community House, struck by a fire during the renovation but now repaired thanks to the generosity of the town’s residents. This generosity, by the way, is a hallmark of town residents who also donated to fund the continuation of the annual Fourth of July parade and help with other community needs.

    Moorestown has a highly regarded public-school system (Moorestown Township Public Schools) as well as Moorestown Friends School, a Quaker day school with roots that go back to 1785.

    As for parks and outdoor recreation spaces, Moorestown has quite a few, from Frank Fullerton Park with its Little League baseball fields, tennis courts and playground to the 70-acre Strawbridge Park with Strawbridge Lake, suitable for kayaking, canoeing and fishing. Don’t leave out Stokes Hill, a favorite sledding area located, appropriately enough, across the street from the home of the inventor of the Flexible Flyer sled. The town also has a variety of athletic clubs and leagues. See a complete list of Moorestown’s parks.

    Despite Mooretown’s proximity to Philadelphia, it does not have a train station for the RiverLine light rail or PATCO high-speed trains. Residents use stations in Haddonfield and Lindenwold to hop on the PATCO line and in Palmyra to catch the RiverLine.
