Burlington County – The Past, Present, and Future of Commercial Real Estate

The county first shows up in the history books in 1681 when the Burlington County courts were established in the Province of West Jersey along with those in Salem County. In that same time frame, the Province of East Jersey was set up with four counties – Bergen, Essex, Middlesex, and Monmouth. Burlington County was named for Bridlington, a fishing village and seaport on the North Sea in the northeastern corner of England.

Bridlington also gave its name to the Burlington County municipalities of Burlington City and Burlington Township. Burlington City served as the county seat from its incorporation in 1693 to 1796 when the county government and courts were moved to Mount Holly, to reflect the migration of much of its population inland from the from the Delaware River.

One of the largest employers in Burlington County, and an important hub in the nation’s defense system, is the United States military facility known as Joint Base McGuire–Dix–Lakehurst. “JB-MDL” as it is colloquially known, is the consolidation of the United States Air Force’s McGuire Air Force Base, the United States Army’s Fort Dix, and the United States Navy’s Naval Air Engineering Station Lakehurst. Many remember Lakehurst as the site of the 1937 explosion of the German zeppelin The Hindenburg, in which 36 people died.
