Delran Township was established by the New Jersey Legislature in 1880. Before that date, Delran Township was part of Cinnaminson Township and before establishing Cinnaminson Township in 1860, Delran, Moorestown, Riverside and Cinnaminson were all part of Chester Township. Some of our historical sites date back to the Chester Township era. The Delran Historical Society is working with Delran Township to install historical markers at locations of historical significance.
In 2016, a total of 10 sites were marked with signs. These sites are:
- Trinity Episcopal Church located on Southbound Route 130
- Methodist Episcopal Church now The House of God South Bridgeboro Street
- Bridgeboro Grammar School now Delran Intermediate School on Creek Road
- Cambridge School was located on Third Street between Main and Chestnut
