Swedesboro NJ Residential Real Estate Properties

Single family Homes, Townhouses and Condos in Swedesboro New Jersey in Gloucester County in Southern New Jersey.

Swedesboro is a borough in Gloucester County, New Jersey,  Swedesboro was settled by a small group of Swedes from Pennsylvania and Delaware in the mid-1600s. The English Colonial government needed a road between the communities of Burlingtown and Salem, so they built the Kings Highway in 1691 which opened the southern portion of Gloucester County to more settlers, who were drawn to the area by the fertile sandy soil, prime farmland and vast tracts of oak, birch, maple and pine trees. Originally, the community was called Raccoon. In 1765 the name was changed to Swedesboro.  The early Swedes and Finns were fishermen, hunters and farmers. Through the late 1800s, Raccoon Creek was a water route that was naturally deep enough to transport wood and farming projects to Philadelphia by the Delaware River.
Swedesboro is an independent municipality surrounded on all sides by Woolwich Township.
Swedesboro, along with Bridgeport, was one of only two settlements established in New Jersey as a part of the New Sweden colony. The oldest extant log cabin in the United States, the Nothnagle Log Cabin (ca. 1640) was built by Antti Niilonpoika (Anthony Neilson/Nelson) in Swedesboro.  It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, as is Trinity Episcopal "Old Swedes" Church, which was established as a Swedish Lutheran Church in 1703; the present building dates to 1784. Trinity Church Cemetery is the burial place of Governor of New Jersey Charles C. Stratton and Congressman Benjamin Franklin Howey, among other notable interees.  Swedesboro has been recognized by the National Arbor Day Foundation as a Tree City USA since 2000.
