Long Description:
In the mid 1700s, iron, charcoal and glass industries were aplenty in the south Jersey pine barrens. The Speedwell Furnace, opened in 1785 by Benjamin Randolph led to the eventual founding of Tabernacle Township.

The crossroads at Tabernacle became an area for local commerce and meeting. A schoolhouse, church, general store, blacksmith and inn were built.

Charles S. Kemble founded this inn in 1845. Apart from being an innkeeper, he was also a farmer and area blacksmith. He served as a member of the NJ House of Assembly from 1855-1859. Later he became the Burlington County Sheriff, but died in office in 1869.
