Founded in the early days of the country, Chester Township in North Jersey can trace its beginnings back to 1713. The area began as a farming community and then when the industrial revolution made its way to the American shores, the town discovered that it was sitting on an iron ore deposit. The Chester Township area grew and grew until, eventually, a larger deposit was found elsewhere. As a result, Chester Township reverted back to an agricultural community. Today, visitors to Chester Township can enjoy the beautiful Victorian architecture that decorated the community. When you rent an RV in Chester Township, you are sure to enjoy the many sides of this community.
