Barclay Farmstead

209 Barclay Lane, Cherry Hill, NJ 08034


Step back in time at the Barclay Farmstead, located in the heart of bustling Cherry Hill. Built in 1816 by a Quaker farmer, Joseph Thorn, the farmhouse and surrounding 32-acre property offer visitors an opportunity to observe and participate in the agrarian lifestyle that once dominated the South Jersey landscape. The Barclay Farmstead was sold by Helen and Emma Barclay to Cherry Hill Township in 1974 in order to preserve the land as a public park and recreation center. The property is now listed on the National and New Jersey Registers of Historic Places.

The Friends of Barclay Farmstead maintain the collections and interpret the stories of the three families that lived in the farmhouse focusing on the daily life of the people who lived and worked on the farm. Visitors can take tours of the farmhouse, spend some time wandering interpretive nature trails and admiring beautiful Plant-A-Patch Garden plots, and attend weekly and monthly special events.


  • Take a tour of the 1816 farmhouse to hear the stories about the people who lived and worked on the farm
