    Chesterfield has many sought out reasons to move here.This community has so much to offer for residents. Starting off with a highly ranked school system that many non-residents desire to be a part of.

    Looking for a rural setting; Chesterfield has is all. The famous York Country Club over a magnificent golf course, fine dining and a country pool. If you are looking for a good Happy Hour there is the good Old Chesterfield Inn. The owners have owned it since the early 1980's.

    We have many farms, such as Katona, Russo's and Hlubik to name a few. Chesterfield has permanently preserved more than 7,000 acres of farmland through state and county programs.

    Chesterfield Township is 23 square miles of beautiful farm country located in Burlington County, New Jersey. Crosswicks was settled by the Quakers in 1677. There are three ‘villages’ in Chesterfield – Chesterfield, Sykesville, and Crosswicks which is the oldest of the three. The Chesterfield area was originally the home to the Lenni-Lenapi Indians who settled along the shores of the Delaware River and inhabited areas in Delaware, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey.

    The third meeting house here, the Crosswicks Friends Meeting House, was built in 1773. It sits in the center of Crosswicks Village. The first was a log structure built in 1693.

    Crosswicks is situated on the ‘King’s Highway” and played a role in the Revolutionary War. On December 29, 1776 nearly 2,100 American troops stayed in the area surrounding the meeting. On January 2, 1777 they received a letter from General Washington that ordered the troops to join the march to Trenton. The Second Battle of Trenton was fought that day. In June 1778 there was a skirmish on the meeting grounds. The meeting house was hit by three cannonballs. One of them hit the brick and left an imprint. The cannonball was saved and later put into the imprint.

    The lovely village center has five named streets: Church Street, Main Street, Front Street, Buttonwood, and New Street. It has its own post office, zip code 08515, that serves as the ‘center’ of the Village since the residents must pick up their mail from their post office boxes and sooner or later everyone crosses paths. The Community Center conducts many programs for the Village including the annual Christmas Tree lighting and visit by Santa Clause, the Halloween parade down Main Street, concerts, and other community events. The Crosswicks Friends Meeting conducts the annual Easter Egg Hunt for all of the Village kids and on the Sunday before Christmas invites the residents of Chesterfield to join in the annual Candlelight Ceremony. Reading scripture, singing carols with your neighbors defines Christmas in Crosswicks.

    Recently the 300-year old tavern in Crosswicks was reopened with a new restaurant on the first floor. The building had been a tavern, a speakeasy during Prohibition and a restaurant. In 1689 the then owner of the tavern, John Bainbridge, lost his liquor license for selling alcohol to the Indian residents. In 1997 the then Upper Crust Pub closed its doors overnight. Four village residents bought the building in 2005 and conducted a $1 million-dollar restoration project designed to save the building and keep its original character and footprint. Once again this building, first opened in 1681 as a respite for travelers moving between New York and Philadelphia, serves as the local ‘watering hole’.

    Chesterfield Township is and always has been a farming community with community support. The excitement that residents feel as the announcement travels through Crosswicks that the first new spring asparagus is up at Katona’s Farm or that Russo’s, Ellis’s, and many more local farms are picking the first corn of the season is part of the wonderful life residents experience. While living in an area that is largely preserved farmland with little option for urban sprawl, Chesterfield residents are close to commuter stations, restaurants, and shopping. It truly is like "falling down the rabbit hole" in New Jersey!
