Cherry Hill, one of the most beloved cities in New Jersey, is located in the Delaware Valley coastal plain, close to the southeastern part of Philadelphia, PA. The area was once home to the Lenni-Lenape Native Americans who did not seem to mind co-existing with new settlers from England who was later joined by William Penn. Back then, the small town was considered a close-knit community with small clusters of homes located in the now Colestown Cemetery. The city grew very rapidly after World War II was over up to this very day. The name Cherry Hill dates back to a 19th century farm owned by Abraham Browning along Route 38; it was later turned into an inn, office campus, shopping center and Cherry Hill Towers. As you can see, the former farm plays a central role in defining the city and its developments so, it is one not-to-be-missed historic sites for visitors. Adding prominence of the name ‘Cherry Hill’, developers constructed properties and named it Cherry Hill too which includes Cherry Hill Inn, Cherry Hill Lodge hotels, Cherry Hill Apartments, Cherry Hill Mall and Cherry Hills Estates. Cherry Hill was included into a list of ‘Best Places to Live’ in the country, as ranked by Money Magazine and was also named one of the safest. Although many large companies have their headquarters in Cherry Hill - Duncan Hines, Pinnacle Foods, Vlasic, Swanson and Subaru of America - many of the residents work outside of Cherry Hill, preferring to commute to cities like Philadelphia, Princeton, New York City and Trenton. This charming New Jersey city was featured in movies and hit songs like Cherry Hill Park by Billy Joe Royal, crime drama Criminal Minds, Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle and the movie The Freshman starring Matthew Broderick.
