History & History Related Items

Merchantville history:

When it was rumored that the railroad was coming through around 1851, much of the farm land was bought up in anticipation of a land boom. Merchantville was created as a borough from portions of Delaware and Stockton townships on 3 March 1874. It was incorporated on 18 May 1874. Later, in 1914, when studies for the Benjamin Franklin Bridge began, the area again began a growth period. The brige opened in 1926 and the borough again had a growth spurt.

Merchantville has many Victorian homes, including the Cattell Tract and The Oaks which are listed in both state and national historic registers. Walking tours of these areas are available from the Merchantville Historical Society.
The incorporation date of Merchantville: 3 March 1874
