Probably West Deptford’s greatest advantage to investors is its proximity to the Deptford Mall shopping and dining complex, with its wide variety of stores of every kind and restaurants for every taste. It makes West Deptford a perfect spot for warehouses, supplier locations and other service industry types.

West Deptford is easily accessed from I-295 and NJ Route 45, which also allows for easy transportation to your location, and a worthwhile spot for restaurants and stores along the main roads as well.

With its fairly densely populated suburban location, its mix of modest income and affluent residents, and proximity to popular destinations in every direction, West Deptford offers a variety of opportunities for commercial real estate investors. It’s a great destination for stores, hotels, filling stations, and any other type of business that caters to the daily needs of suburban residents and commuters.

History of West Deptford

Ladd’s Castle, on Lafayette Avenue in West Deptford’s Colonial Manor section, is the oldest brick home in Gloucester County. Also known as Candor Hall, Ladd’s Castle was completed in 1688 by William Ladd, a surveyor who worked with William Penn to lay out the master street grid design of Philadelphia. The home was added to the National Register of Historic Places in October 1972, just six months after its nomination to the New Jersey Register of Historic Places in March 1972.

A fellow West Deptford resident of Ladd’s, albeit centuries later, is Philadelphia public address announcer Dan Baker, best known for his decades of work at Veterans Stadium, Lincoln Financial Field, and Citizens Bank Park. So far in his career, which started in 1972, Baker has worked five World Series (1980, 1983, 1993, 2008 and 2009), two Major League Baseball All Star Games (1976 and 1996), and three NFC Championship Games (2002, 2003, and 2004). Since the 2009 retirement of Bob Sheppard as Yankee Stadium PA announcer, Baker became the longest-tenured stadium voice in the MLB.

Solidifying its place in the sports world pantheon, West Deptford also plays host each year to the Eastern Regional Tournament of the Senior Little League Baseball World Series. The winner of this tournament advances to the Senior League World Series, a competition that brings baseball teams from around the world together in a structure akin to the Little League Baseball World Series. The 12 states in the East Region are Connecticut, Delaware, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, and Washington, D.C. In the 55-year history of the Senior League World Series, two champions have come from New Jersey: Freehold Township, Monmouth County, in 2004 and Upper Deerfield Township, Cumberland County, in 2008

West Deptford was created in March 1871 and was named for its location west of the municipality from which it was carved: Deptford Township. About three decades later, the township ceded segments of its area to the new boroughs of National Park (in April 1902) and Westville (in 1914). It also had a smaller portion taken in May 1907 when Woodbury City was incorporated.

West Deptford Township covers 17.8 square miles to place it as the eighth-largest among the 24 Gloucester County municipalities. It sits between the 19.2-square-mile Harrison Township and the 17.6-square-mile Deptford Township. The largest municipality, by area, in Gloucester County is Franklin Township, at 56.4 square miles, while the smallest is Swedesboro Borough at 0.76 of a square mile.

West Deptford is the fourth most populous municipality in Burlington County with a 2010 U.S. Census population of 21,600, roughly 9,000 fewer than third-place Deptford Township, with 30,500, and about 3,000 more than fifth-place Glassboro Borough, with 18,500. Washington Township claims the most residents in Gloucester County with 48,500 while Newfield Borough has the fewest, just 1,500.
