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.

In 1805, William and Sarah Wilkens deeded this land to be used by the residents of Tabernacle "As Long as the Wheels of Time Shall not Cease to Roll."
