    As a professional real estate agent this is my hometown. And I, Beverly Anne Lewis was born on the 229th birthday of Pennsville Township that was founded on July 10, 1721. Can you guess this town was named after one of our famous settlers William Penn. Originally, the area was known as Lower Penns Neck Township. On February 21, 1798 the New Jersey Legislature approved the division into Upper Penns Neck (now Carneys Point Township) and Lower Penns Neck. I was 15 yrs. old when a referendum was introduced on November 2, 1965 that changed the name to Pennsville Township.

    It is a quiet town of 24.588 square miles that could be called an island of paradise. If you take a look at a map, you will see the Delaware River runs along the west and south border to the Salem River that defines the east side connecting to the Deepwater Canal which is the north side of Pennsville leading back to the Delaware. Did I confuse you? Well take a look at the map and see for yourself - Pennsville is surrounded by a scenic view of water. If you are looking for that small town feel and want to be close to the water or have a waterfront view this town is a hidden, little peaceful community.

    According to the 2010 United States Census, there is a population of 13,409 residents with 5,491 households. The tax records show a total of 4,669 homes and 197 commercial buildings. The school system has 3 elementary schools, a middle school and a high school.
    Pennsville Township is at the foot of the Delaware Memorial Bridge with all major highways leading to this township. The New Jersey Turnpike, Route 295, Route 130, Route 49 and Route 40 all start or stop here at the north side of Pennsville, keeping Cracker Barrel, Applebee's, Burger King, McDonald's, Taco Bell and Kentucky Fried Chicken always busy and we are waiting for our Super WaWa to be built.

    My favorite part of living in Pennsville is the close proximity to major areas. Driving from Pennsville, I can be in Philadelphia in 45 minutes; New York City takes 2 hours; Atlantic CityJ 1 ½ hours; Wilmington, Delaware 20 minutes; Lancaster, PA 1 hour; Baltimore 1 ½ hours; Washington DC in 2 hours and let’s not forget Annapolis, MD in only 2 hours. So take it from an experienced, local real estate agent that has been a resident and in the business since 1998 - Pennsville is a great place to live!
