Monroe Township, NJ is considered a suburb of Philadelphia, but it’s far enough removed from the city to be away from the congestion. With U.S. 322 as the main artery through the township, it can be a great spot for setting up a restaurant, hotel, or convenience store to serve people on travels to Atlantic City or Philadelphia. 

Monroe Township is also a prime destination for manufacturing companies – larger employers here include Cooper Electric Supply, Amusement of America, and Ohm International.

The Township, at 47 square miles in area, is the second-largest municipality in Gloucester County, behind the 56-square-mile Franklin Township and ahead of Logan Township, at 27 square miles. In population, Monroe – with 36,100 residents – is also in second place among county municipalities, behind the 48,600 people in Washington Township and ahead of Deptford Township with 30,600. Monroe’s population is up nearly 25 percent from the 28,900 residents recorded in the 2010 Census.

The History of Monroe Township

Monroe Township, Gloucester County, is one of two municipalities in New Jersey – and one of nearly 80 across the country – using that name. It’s also, in its nearly 160-year history, been part of two different counties and two bordering municipalities, and offers corporations and developers myriad commercial real estate opportunities.

President Monroe studied law at the University of Virginia under Thomas Jefferson, be elected Governor of Virginia and to the United States Senate for his home state, and serve as both Secretary of State and Secretary of War under his predecessor, James Madison. As chief executive, Monroe is best remembered for two major initiatives: Establishing the African country of Liberia – with the eponymous capital city of Monrovia – as a homeland for freed slaves, and championing the Monroe Doctrine opposing the creation of any new European colonies in the Western Hemisphere.

Back in South Jersey, Monroe Township was created in 1859 from portions of neighboring Washington Township while that township still was a part of Camden County. Twelve years later, in 1871, both Monroe and Washington Townships were shifted to Gloucester County. Finally, in 1950, Monroe assumed its current size and shape when portions to transferred to Winslow Township.

The unincorporated census-designated place of Williamstown covers a large portion of Monroe Township. Originally known as “Squankum,” a Lenni-Lenape word meaning “place where evil spirits dwell” (a reference to the proliferation of low-lying swamp land and mosquitoes), it received its more pleasant-sounding current name when – in the early 18th century – resident John Williams began subdividing and selling his substantial land holdings to residents.

The Township also is home to the Scotland Run Golf Club, a public golf course with a links-styled motif mimicking such world-famous clubs as St. Andrews and Muirfield in Scotland and Royal Portrush in Northern Ireland.
