The Township of Washington was incorporated on February 17, 1836 as part of Gloucester County

Washington Township has not always been in Gloucester County. We were part of Camden County from March 14, 1844 until February 28, 1871. (That was the day Camden County was formed!) In September of 1846 someone came up with the bright idea of putting Franklin, Washington, Gloucester and Winslow townships into a new "Washington County". Monroe Township was a part of Washington Township until March of 1859. (this fact from Joan B. Michael)
