Delaware Township is a strategically situated farming community, lying halfway between New York City and Philadelphia. The township has a rich history, going back to early Lenni-Lenape settlements. The iconic symbol of the township is the last, and only, covered bridge in New Jersey. Delaware Township uniquely maintains many of the vestiges of its farming heritage, with its picturesque country roads, ancient fields, and a feed store still in operation. Many historic structures still stand, including the town hall, which is the site of an old tavern, and original mill buildings. In the past, township life was focused on a number of villages, each with its own local schools, churches, and stores. The vintage images in Delaware Township have been graciously shared by a number of township residents.
