William Faulkner said, “History is not was, it is.” History is always being made in Burlington County. We are rich in culture, spanning from Native Americans to the Industrial Revolution. The Parks System is currently home to six historic sites where you can learn about the people and events that helped to shape Burlington County. Each offers a wide variety of tours, exhibits, programing and events that make history come alive for its visitors.
Burlington County is rich in history and culture. Our diverse history spans from the Native Americans to the Revolutionary War, agriculture and the cranberry and blueberry industry, women’s rights, transportation, industry and innovation.
