Welcome to Mount Laurel

A vibrant and diverse area that is perfect for those who love history and a sense of community


Mount Laurel is a township in Burlington County that is an edge city of Philadelphia. It is known as one of the most interesting heritages in New Jersey. Take, for instance, its history that starts back when the Leni Lenape settled in the area in the 1400s and established many of the trails that are now known as the area's roads. Or when the first Quaker settlements from England moved into Mount Laurel in the late 1600s and helped grow this small town.

Today, the area is known for its vibrance and liveliness, which genuinely makes the township one of the best places to live in New Jersey.
