New Jersey Historical MarkersBurlington - Yorkshire Neighborhood

in New Jersey Historical Markers

In the early years of Burlington the houses were characteristically English in their primitive structure. It was the Swede who intruced the block-house in America. Soon the settlement began to take on the appearance of a town, and to be regarded as worthy of a name. In memory of an old Yorkshire village it was christened Burlington.
