Moorestown History

The village of Moorestown was established as a Quaker town in 1682. It was originally known as Chestertown. It was named Moorestown during the mid 1800s after Thomas Moore, who was a major landowner. The location where the New Jersey Bell Telephone Company presently stands is significant in the history of the town, because this was the land where John Cox built a tavern in 1745. Town meetings were held at this tavern before the Old Town Hall was built.
