About This Town

Voorhees Township is a township in Camden County, New Jersey, United States. As of the United States 2000 Census, the township population was 28,126. Voorhees is a New Jersey suburb of the Greater Philadelphia Metropolitan area.

Voorhees Township was incorporated as a township by an Act of the New Jersey Legislature on Waterford Township. Portions of the township were taken on March 8, 1924, to form Gibbsboro. Voorhees borders the Camden County communities of Berlin Township, Cherry Hill, Gibbsboro, Lindenwold, and Somerdale. To the west is Evesham Township in Burlington County.

The area comprises the Ashland, Kirkwood, Kresson, Glendale, and Osage sections. Voorhees is largely a bedroom community, with many of its residents commuting to Cherry Hill or Philadelphia for work. The western part of the township, near Echelon Mall, is mainly middle-class, while more northern and eastern sections tend to be more affluent.
