About Laurel Springs, New Jersey
Named for the medicinal crystal springs discovered among the laurel groves here, Laurel Springs was first settled by Quakers in the late 1600s and was finally incorporated as a borough in the early 1900s. This was a favorite resort area for vacationers who came to enjoy the springs, the lake, and the area's natural beauty, and it became one of Walt Whitman's favorite places to visit. Today, situated about a half-hour southeast of Philadelphia, Laurel Springs provides a quiet suburban lifestyle for its 1900 residents.
