About Vineland

Plenty of room to grow is the hallmark of 69-square-mile Vineland, geographically the largest city in the state. The primary marketing and distributing point in southern New Jersey, Vineland also is an industrial city. The city has many specialty glass, food-processing and clothing factories as well as numerous transportation concerns and retail and factory outlets.

As its name implies, Vineland was intended to be the focus of a wine-producing region. In 1861 promoter Charles K. Landis attracted to the area farmers from the mid-Atlantic states and Italian immigrants familiar with vineyards. For the town, Landis platted a 1-square-mile grid with equally spaced streets, houses and trees. While this plan remains evident as the nucleus of present-day Vineland, the vineyards did not last.

After a quarter-century of growth, disease struck the vines, and most of the wine-grape industry was abandoned. All was not lost, however: An enterprising dentist developed a non-fermentative method of preserving grape juice, one that permanently associated the product with his name—Thomas Welch.

In 1868 the women of Vineland staged one of the earliest women's suffrage demonstrations in the country. Unwilling to allow their opinions to go unheard during that presidential election, 172 women defiantly cast their token votes, a number of whom supported Elizabeth Cady Stanton for president.

Recreational facilities are provided in Landis, Magnolia, Gittone and Giampetro parks. Six miles west of town via CR 540 is Parvin State Park.
