Overview

Introduction to Stratford, New Jersey

Stratford, New Jersey, in Camden county, is 5 miles SE of Gloucester, New Jersey and 11 miles SE of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Stratford History

Stratford was originally known as White Horse. The community was established on June 1, 1695, initially consisting of only nine homes. It grew to comprise a blacksmith shop, a general store, and a wheelwright shop. During the Revolutionary War, patriots in the area built small, fast sea vessels known as Privateers. White Horse Pike was laid in the area in 1807, and increasing stagecoach service brought business into the region. The Camden and Atlantic Railroad entered the community in the mid 1800s, leading to an increase in the town’s population. The community was named after Stratford, England. It was officially incorporated on February 13, 1925.
