All About East Vineland, NJ

The personal injury lawyers in East Vineland, NJ, at NJ Injury Guys have provided the following historical facts about the community for your reading pleasure.

East Vineland

East Vineland is an unincorporated community within the Township of Buena Vista in the western section of Atlantic County, New Jersey. The elevation of the community is 105 feet. The neighboring communities include Vineland, Buena, Minotola, and Landisville. At the center of the neighborhood is the intersection of Landis Avenue and Union Road. 

History

The area was finally incorporated in the Buena Vista Township in Atlantic County on March 5, 1867. Many of the early settlements in the area were near Deep Run in the area of Pancoast Mill. The neighborhood, along with Milmay and Richland, were farms that grew the following crops: 

  • tomatoes
  • corn
  • peppers
  • other vegetables

The early settlers were Dutch and Swedish, then the Scottish and English, followed by the African Americans, Germans, Welsh, and Irish. It wasn't until later that the Italians, Russians, Jews, and Puerto Ricans began to settle in the area. Although the majority of the Buena Vista Township is set in the Pinelands, the area to the west of Union Road is not included. The Pinelands is a natural land reserve that covers seven counties and includes 53 towns in the state of New Jersey. The largest underground water supply on the east coast, called the Kirkwood-Cohansey aquifer, is under the reserve. 

Neighborhood

The East Vineland Volunteer Fire Co. was established in 1926. A group of farmers realized the area needed fire protection for the farming neighborhood, especially due to their potatoes hotbeds that had a tendency to catch fire. Josephine Benero donated the land the firehouse was built on. 

The area is home to the Slavic Evangelical Baptist Church that was founded in 1992 by Symon Kerusenko, Ilya Babenko, Stanislav Stetsenko, Viktor Nechay, and Aleksandr Boyarsky. They offer Russian language classes to the community in addition to the teen, women, and young adults Bible study.
