Woodbury Heights, NJ is a quaint borough thirty minutes from downtown Philadelphia. This wooded community is full of small town charm; with it’s welcoming atmosphere and eclectic mom-and-pop shops, it has a lot to offer everyone.
Woodbury Heights got its start like its similarly named neighbor, Woodbury, in 1683 by Henry Wood of England. Wood, a Quaker, left his home in Bury, Lancashire after being incarcerated in Lancaster, England for practicing his faith. The borough was named after the city of Woodbury, which was derived from Wood’s surname and his home village.
The area was first developed in 1771 and is reflected in some of the preserved architecture. In 1892, the Land Title Company was formed by six businessmen from Philadelphia and Camden. In 1894 they purchased the land west of the town railroad from Deptford Township. They then laid out all of the streets and built homes plus a community hall. Woodbury Heights began developing sections known as Southwood West, Southwood East, and the Summit, in 1960. Homes were built near the lake in 1980 as further development occurred throughout the area.
Students attending kindergarten through sixth grade are served at the Woodbury Heights Elementary School. Those from seventh through twelfth grades attend Gateway Regional High School, a public school that serves students from multiple boroughs in the area. Gateway Regional, home of the Gators, participates in the Colonial Conference and has won titles in field hockey, boys soccer, and baseball.
The borough’s seal was proudly designed by 9th grade resident, Alec Ferrell in 2000. Symbols representing a scale of justice, a protective shield, and LT and VI for the six men who formed the Land Title Company are prominently displayed along with two hands shaking, showing the relationship of the borough and the community.
