Conveniently located between exit 2 off the NJ Turnpike and exit 50 off Route 55, this township is home to individual towns including Historic Mullica Hill, Ewan, Richwood and Jefferson.
Easy to access but hard to leave, our little town in the heart of Gloucester County covers 19 square miles, has a population of over 13,000 and is home to the state-of-the-art Inspira Medical Center and just 3 miles from Rowan University. Did we mention 30 minutes to Center City Philadelphia and Wilmington DE and less than two hours to NYC and Baltimore? Small town charm with access to just about everything!
No wonder we are one of the premier towns in New Jersey to live and raise a family.
Main Street Mullica Hill
– Stroll the Historic Charm
Harrison Township is home to historic Main Street, Mullica Hill with dozens of Pre-Revolution to Victorian era homes built in the 1700, 1800 and early 1900’s, that create a truly relaxing and enjoyable atmosphere for all. The Main Street district features several fashionable clothing and accessory shops, antique stores, sweet treats for the young and old, amazing eateries and specialty interior design retailers.
Main Street is also home to our towns signature event – Lights on Main. This annual Holiday celebration has been the “best of event” in Gloucester County for the past 10 years and is attended by over 10,000 people from the region. Those who attend enjoy carriage rides, ice sculptures, carolers, bounce houses, an arts & crafts Christmas Village, photos with Santa and Mrs. Claus, and so much MORE!
Over 40 trees are illuminated and line the street to create a one-of-a-kind magical family friendly experience that culminates with the lighting of the Old Town Hall Christmas Tree by Mayor Manzo and the Township Committee. It is a truly Norman Rockwell inspired setting.
Main Street also hosts many other incredible events throughout the year including Celebration on Main (Harrison Township Day), The Fall Festival, Ghost Walk, Historic House Tour, and more. Charm and history come together here – come visit us.
