About Maple Shade, NJ

Maple Shade is a township in Burlington County, NJ, found approximately 10 miles east of downtown Philadelphia. It was originally formed as Chester Township in 1688, and incorporated as one of New Jersey’s initial townships in 1798. The township’s name was changed to Maple Shade in November 1945.

Maple Shade has approximately 19,000 residents, with 8,500 households spread across 3.8 square miles of land.
