Woodbury is a city in Gloucester County, New Jersey, in the United States. As of the 2010 United States Census the city's population was 10,174,[9][10][11] reflecting a decline of 133 (-1.3%) from the 10,307 counted in the 2000 Census, which had in turn declined by 597 (-5.5%) from the 10,904 counted in the 1990 Census.[20] Woodbury is the county seat of Gloucester County.[21]

Woodbury was originally formed as a borough on March 27, 1854, within Deptford Township, based on the results of a referendum held on March 22, 1854. On January 2, 1871, Woodbury was reincorporated as a city, based on the results of a referendum held that day.[22]

The Inspira Health Network is based in Woodbury.[23] The now-defunct Woodbury Country Club operated in Woodbury from 1897 to 2010, closing due to declining membership and mounting debt that led to a bankruptcy filing by the club.[24]

As recounted by the historian William McMahon, the Native Americans called the place where the city of Woodbury was to be founded, "Piscozackasing" or, 'place of the black burrs'.[25]

Woodbury was founded in 1683 by Henry Wood, a Quaker from the Northwest of England, who had left Great Britain due to religious persecution. Wood was incarcerated in Lancaster gaol for practicing as a Quaker and left his home in the village of Tottington, near Bury, Lancashire, in a boat to set up a community in the new world where he and his family could practice his religion freely. His surname and his home town went to make up the name of the city he founded – Woodbury.[26][27][28]

In 2000, the Borough of Bury, England, and the City of Woodbury were twinned as part of millennium celebrations in both countries. The twinning ceremony was the culmination of a week where more than 300 school children and college students, local dignitaries and local residents from Bury took part in sporting and cultural events held in and around Woodbury with local people. During the week there was a symbolic meeting and reconciliation of the Vicar of Henry Wood's former church in Tottington and the Quaker meeting house in Woodbury and an ecumenical service attended by many of the residents and visitors.[29]

Paleontological discovery

In 1787, a fossil bone recovered in Woodbury from local Cretaceous strata was discussed by the American Philosophical Society in Philadelphia.[30] The remains were only retrospectively identified as dinosaurian,[30] as dinosaurs would not be scientifically recognized as a distinct group of reptiles until Sir Richard Owen presented his treatise on British fossil reptiles to the British Association in August 1841.[31]

Recycling forerunner

Woodbury was the first city in the United States to mandate recycling. This effort was led by then-councilman and later mayor Donald P. Sanderson in the 1970s, and an ordinance was finally passed in December 1980. The idea of towing a "recycling" trailer behind a trash collection vehicle to enable the collection of trash and recyclable material at the same time emerged. Sanderson was asked to speak in municipalities throughout the country and other towns and cities soon followed suit.[32]

Historic district

There are numerous contributing properties to the Broad Street Historic District encompassing Broad Street (between Woodbury Creek and Courtland Street) and Delaware Street (between Broad and Wood streets), including the Gloucester County Courthouse, which was listed on the New Jersey Register of Historic Places (#1429) in 1988.[33]


According to the United States Census Bureau, the city had a total area of 2.059 square miles (5.333 km2), including 2.009 square miles (5.203 km2) of land and 0.050 square miles (0.130 km2) of water (2.43%).[1][2] Woodbury has a few lakes that feed off of Woodbury Creek.

The city borders Deptford Township, West Deptford Township and Woodbury Heights.[34][35]


Woodbury has a humid subtropical climate (Köppen climate classification Cfa) typical of New Jersey with warm summers and cold winters.

Local government

Woodbury is governed under the City form of New Jersey municipal government, which is used in 15 of 565 municipalities statewide.[50] The governing body is comprised of a Mayor and a City Council. A Mayor is elected at-large directly by the voters for a four-year term of office. The City Council is comprised of nine members, three from each of three wards, elected to serve three-year terms on a staggered basis, with one seat from each ward coming up for election each year as part of the November general election in a three-year cycle.[7][51]

As of 2020, the Mayor of the City of Woodbury is Democrat Jessica M. Floyd, whose term ends December 31, 2020. Members of the Woodbury City Council are Council President Tracey L. Parker (D, 2021; Ward 1), Danielle Carter (D, 2022; Ward 1), William H. Fleming Jr. (D, 2021; Ward 2), Philip Haggerty (D, 2021; Ward 3), Theodore Johnson Jr. (D, 2020; Ward 2), Ken McIlvaine (D, 2020; Ward 3), Reed Merinuk (D, 2022; Ward 3), Donna Miller (D, 2020; Ward 1) and Karlene O'Connor (D, 2022; Ward 2).[3][52][53][54][55][56]

In April 2017, the City Council selected Karlene O'Connor from a list of three candidates nominated by the Democratic municipal committee to fill the Second Ward seat expiring in December 2019 that had been held by David Trovato until he resigned from office earlier in the month.[57]

At the January 2017 reorganization meeting, the City Council chose Kenneth McIlvaine from three candidates nominated by the Democratic municipal committee to fill the Third Ward seat expiring in December 2017 that was vacated by Jessica Floyd when she took office as mayor.[58]

The Democratic sweep in November 2012 of the three council seats and mayor gave the party a 6-3 majority on the 2013 council.[59]
