Cherry Hill Apartments for Rent
Traveling down a two-mile stretch of road lined with pastel pink cherry trees in full bloom is sure to make even the weariest of travelers smile – but you’ll have a narrow window to see this spectacular sight, since the cherry trees bloom for a short time at the end of April. This is a spectacular time in Cherry Hill, New Jersey, when the weather turns slightly warmer and the residents come out to line the streets and cheer at the annual Cherry Blossom Parade.
Cherry Hill Township is an attractive community just across the Delaware River from Philadelphia. It is home to the Cherry Hill Mall, one of the largest malls in New Jersey. While many residents commute into nearby Philadelphia, which is only eight miles from Cherry Hill, there are several employers in the township, as well, including Pinnacle Foods, Subaru, and TD Bank.
Settled in the late 17th century by Quakers, the area eventually became known as Delaware Township. The name wasn’t changed until 1961, and the name was chosen by citizens in honor of the 19th century farm that once occupied a large portion of the township. Croft Farm, built in 1753, is a historic landmark located in the township. Barclay Farm House, built in 1816, is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is open to the public for tours. It is also the site of special events, outdoor concerts, and living history programs.
