Heritage Village in Marlton (Evesham)
This week’s featured neighborhood is Heritage Village in Marlton, Evesham Township. Heritage Village, including the Georgetown section located within it, is one of Evesham Township’s first housing developments located between Route 70 and Main Street. Heritage Village is comprised of a total of 700 single family homes, and was lovingly named after the family that once owned the farm, famous for its “Heritage strawberry,” upon which the development was built. Within Heritage there are five models of homes to choose from including the The Winston, The Kent, The Carlton, The Heritage and the Concord Rancherama (see below images).
Construction began in Heritage Village with about 200 homes between 1955 and 1959. This section of the community was originally known as Georgetown, and is now considered part of Heritage Village. Around this time, Stuart Construction developed a sewer disposal plant known as Georgetown Sewerage Corporation on Elmwood Road for use by the residents of Georgetown. In 1961 the Township’s newly formed Municipal Utilities Authority acquired the plant and expanded its service territory to cover most of the Northern half of the Township. Stuart Construction built 500 additional homes in this larger area situated next to Georgetown between 1959 and 1964.
