When this vast area that is now Sicklerville was first settled, there was a dense population of pine trees here, as well as cedar trees. This led to a charcoal trade, because charcoal was made from the large pines. Christopher, Jacob and John Zeigler came to the US from Germany in 1754 and raised their families in these forests. By 1800 they had changed their family name to Sickler, the reasons are unclear. One of the children, John Sickler built the first cabin here, out of the cedar wood around the year 1800.
Philadelphia’s demand for the charcoal to smelt iron soon clear cut the forests and the Sickler’s started a farming community on the land. They started the first Methodist church in 1837 with their own land and in 1865 Paul opened the general store, marking the area for growth. In 1872, when the Williamstown Branch of the Philadelphia and Atlantic Railroad went through southern New Jersey, a railroad station was erected and called “Sicklertown”. Sicklertown became an active stop, and the area was ready for business.
Two years later, Paul Sickler opened the first Post Office inside of his general store and the sign out front read Sicklerville. People also called it Waretown for another affluent family here, but that name faded and the Sickler name held strong. Known by all three names for a number of years, finally the name of Sicklerville was permanently adopted. Sicklerville is currently part of Winslow Township. Hutchinson’s has been providing services in the local area since 1948.
