Voorhees is a township located in Camden County, New Jersey, and has a population of just under 30,000 residents. The town got its name from the governor in 1899, Foster McGowan Voorhees, who filed the petition to make the town a separate entity. Up until the settlers created homesteads in the area, the original residents were the Lenni-Lenape Nation of the Algonquian People. In the Algonquian tribes, the Lenni-Lenape were known as "The Original People." They live peacefully with neighboring tribes allowing them to travel into the area to hunt, fish, and even stay to grow crops in the rich soil such as: 

  • Corn
  • Pumpkin
  • Beans

The tribe moved more towards the Atlantic Ocean in the summer months and in the winter, moving more inland. One path the tribes used to go to the coast got so worn down; it became a stagecoach route called "Long-a-Coming Road." The same road got paved over in the present and still in service as a way to the coast known as Route 561, or Haddonfield-Berlin Road.

The area played a role during the Civil War. As men from Voorhees served in the Union Army, food was scarce, and Major Edward Winslow Coffin set up a field bakery. He developed an open on wheels to deliver the soldiers fresh bread. The Coffin House is a historic site that served as a residence, store, post office, stagecoach stop, and commercial office building.
