Evesham is a primarily suburban township located in southern New Jersey on the western side of Burlington County. It is bordered on the north by Mount Laurel, on the east by Medford Township, on the south by Waterford Township, and on the west by Berlin, Voorhees, and Cherry Hill Townships.1 Evesham Township comprises 29.5 square miles, or approximately 18,930 acres of land, of which approximately 291 acres are classified as surface water.
Evesham is traversed by New Jersey Route 70, a major east–west corridor, which leads to Camden and Philadelphia. This intersects with Route 73, a north–south arterial that connects to I-295, a limited access freeway.
Natural resources have long shaped the lives of Evesham’s residents. Long before European settlement, the area’s streams and fertile soils attracted Lenape Native Americans to Burlington County. European settlers also took advantage of the high-quality agricultural soils in the northern part of the township and also began damming the local streams to build grist mills and saw mills.
One of Evesham’s special features is that approximately three-quarters of the township’s area falls within the Pinelands, a sensitive ecological region on New Jersey’s outer coastal plain. The Pinelands region is one of the last remaining large tracts of forest land on the entire East Coast, and is home to multiple endangered species. The area has sandy, acidic soils, which cover the Kirkwood-Cohansey aquifer, one of the world’s largest underground aquifers.
