If there was an adjective to describe a small, rural yet metropolitan respite from the typical, been-there, done-that suburbia—that word would be Swedesboro, and the place, Swedesboro, NJ. This town is simply a shining example of what can be done when private partnerships, public funds, business determination and community enthusiasm come together and polish a quiet gem.
Nestled among the quaint architectural dwellings is Swedesboro’s walkable downtown shopping district with its unique shops, a variety of dining experiences, historical sites and an exciting variety of events all year round. Finding a truly unique gift is a breeze as you’ll find traditional, handmade quilts blocks away from some of the country’s finest cigars. Linger for brunch, lunch and evening fine dining at one of our restaurants or casual eateries and create that perfect escape from the everyday. For a complete list of shopping and dining options, click here.
In between, discover your past at one of Swedesboro’s four locations listed on The National and/or State Registers of Historic Places: The John C. Rulon House, Richardson Avenue School, Trinity Episcopal “Old Swedes” Church and the Van Leer/Mortenson Log Cabin. To learn more about Swedesboro’s rich history, click here. Be sure to plan ahead and come to town for one of our exciting events from old-fashioned family fun to elegant evenings with the finest jazz under the stars.
