There is evidence that humans have lived in NJ for over 10,000 years. We don’t have much information on what came of this area during 9,700 of those years, but we do have a more recent history of the areas that our contractors do business in. Voorhees was made into a township in 1899. Voorhees Township was named for the governor that authorized its creation, Foster McGowan Voorhees.
Our knowledge of the history of this land that is now Voorhees only goes back to the documentation of the Lenni-Lenape Nation. These Native American people were known as “the grandfathers”, “original people”, and “the men of men”. They lived here before the colonial settlers. Many other nomadic tribes also traveled in this area. They created a well used path called “Long-a-coming-trail” that we still use today, known as Route 561. Today you can see Hutchinson contractors vans coming up and down Haddonfield-Berlin road to repair an air conditioning system or install upgraded heating services.
In 1854 the township grew quickly following the debut of the Camden-Atlantic railroad. The first census of the area happened in 1900, when more of the surrounding communities were still a part of Voorhees Township. There were 969 people here then, there were about 3,400 people here when Hutchinson Plumbing started in 1948, and now there are over 29,000 residents. It has become a hub of hospitals, commerce and trendy hotspots like the Voorhees town center.
It’s also home of the training facilities for the Philadelphia Flyers of the NHL and the corporate offices for the Philadelphia Soul football team. In October 2013, Voorhees received a Bronze Level Certification as a Sustainable Jersey Community by the non-profit organization “Sustainable Jersey”. In 2018, Vorhees Township also altered their property inspection program.
All buildings here will now be inspected on an ongoing basis, every four years. This makes it a great time for Hutchinson to come out and evaluate your HVAC system. Any upgrades will add value to your home or business. For more information about the town inspection process, see the Vorhees, NJ website.
