The township of Evesham, named for a place in England by its first settlers in 1676, is located on the southeast side of Cherry Hill between Voorhees and Medford. The village of Marlton is located in Evesham and the two names are often used interchangeably. Marlton is the location of the original settlement – the one named Evesham. Due to the discovery of marl, a type of fertilizer, the name of the village eventually changed to Marlton. Evesham, the community that grew out from Marlton, broke away from Marlton in 1871 and became a separate township. The Evesham Historical Society is located in the village of Marlton.
