Westville, NJ is a small borough that is bordered by the Delaware River and Big Timber Creek. This residential community is affectionately known as the “Gateway to South Jersey”, has a population of 4,500 and is about the halfway point between Washington, D.C. and New York City.
Like much of the area, the earliest history dates back to the Leni Lenape American Indians. These people had settled along the Delaware River and its tributaries to take advantage of the fish filled waterways. Native artifacts have been found throughout Westville indicating their time in the area.
Over the early years in the Colony of New Jersey, a route called the Great Road was established, running from Perth Amboy to Burlington and through Salem. The route later changed names to King’s Highway and it crossed Big Timber Creek where Westville is today. Understanding that this route had created a need for a stage stop, Thomas West, who the town was named for, built a tavern by the creek. The tavern quickly became a popular stop for travelers going to, or coming from lower NJ. The Thomas West Home currently stands on River Drive and was built circa 1775.
Back in 1895, William Thompson of Gloucester opened the most elaborate amusement park in the United States with six hundred acres of land, stretched along the Delaware River. Named after the first President of the U.S, Washington Park then boasted the world’s tallest Ferris wheels, as well as carousels, an early roller coaster, gravity railway, and a famous electric fountain show—wildly popular with all patrons of the grand park. A day of fun and frolic could be had by all, strolling the riverside pier, listening to music at the pavilion, as balloons rose and fireworks burst above them.
