Checking Out the History of the Place Gloucester City Was Named After

Before becoming Gloucester City proper, the area saw many changes of ownership. First, there were the Dutch in the 1620s, who created Fort Nassau for trading beaver pelts, followed by its incorporation into New Sweden. The Swedish owners moved the settlement across the river to forge Fort Casimir in 1651. In 1677, the English Quakers arrived on the river and erected the permanent settlement of Axwamus, reaching the size of a town by 1689. This is where Gloucester City would eventually stand as a chartered city. Now in Camden County, New Jersey, having been incorporated in 1868, it bears the... Read more →
