Westampton Township was organized from the township of Northampton by an Act of Assembly dated March 6, 1850. It received its name as the “western” portion of Northampton. In 1854, a part was added from Pemberton Township, and in 1880, Eastampton Township was formed from Westampton. In 1956, the township was completed with Willingboro Township giving the balance of Rancocas Village to Westampton Township.
The area of the township today is 12 square miles with the Rancocas Creek forming a natural southern border. The township is bounded on the west by Willingboro, on the north by Burlington Township and Springfield, and on the east by Eastampton and Mt. Holly.
Westampton is rich in history. The first inhabitants were the Lenape Indians. The first Quaker settlers arrived in Burlington County in 1677, and some settled on the meadow bank of the Rancocas Creek. Rancocas Village, 101 homes in a State and National Historic District, developed around the Rancocas Friends Meeting House which was erected in 1772. The Village was divided between Westampton and Willingboro until 1956. The Rancocas Post Office was established in 1838 and is still in operation.
Today, Westampton Township, with 7,500 residents, is a thriving community with prime commercial acreage, a wide choice of residential communities, the Rancocas State Park which houses the Rankokus Indian Reservation and the Nature Center, and two Country Clubs with 18 hole championship golf courses. Our children attend two modern schools through eighth grade and Rancocas Valley Regional High School.
