Palmyra, NJ is a quaint borough, a residential community with a population of approximately 2,500. It sits on the east side of the Delaware River with the Tacony-Palmyra Bridge connecting the town to Philadelphia, PA. The Palmyra train station is part of NJ Transit’s River line rail system also connecting it to the PATCO Speedline.
In the late 17th century this area was settled by Swedish immigrants and later by English Quakers. This place was sparsely settled farmland until 1834, when the Camden & Amboy Railroad built a rail station here. By the mid-1800’s Philadelphia businessman purchased much of the farmland between the railroad and the Delaware River and named the area Palmyra after the famous ancient trading center in Syria. That is far away, but Hutchinson contractors are local, and have been doing HVAC and plumbing services around here for a long time. Our family business started in 1948, and we grew famous in the area for our ‘expertly better’ services.
Palmyra has a baseball claim to fame. In 1938, baseball player Russell ‘Lena’ Blackburne discovered that a local area mud made new baseballs less slippery and easier to throw. Now every major league baseball team uses “Lena Blackburn Baseball Rubbing Mud”, which is still manufactured in the area. Palmyra is also home to the Lena Blackburn Memorial Field.
Today Palmyra, NJ is a quiet community with modest homes and a small-town feel. Several of the streets share their names with Center City, Philadelphia streets, such as Market, Arch, and Race. The borough is home to the Palmyra Nature Cove. The cove serves as a bird sanctuary and offers hiking trails for visitors. The community also offers an annual Palmyra Day event in May that offers a street fair, car show, and other family friendly events. While you’re there, you may see a Hutchinson’s plumbing & heating van drive by!
