Cherry Hill

Cherry Hill, township (1990 pop. 69,319), Camden co., W central N.J.; name was changed from Delaware township to Cherry Hill in 1961. Largely residential, Cherry Hill has been marked by great development and housing growth, especially since the 1970s. Local industries include engineering, electronics, and service and retailing. Several universities in the Philadelphia area are nearby. Of interest is the early 19th-century Barclay Farmstead.
