Vineland is located in the southern part of the state of New Jersey and a city in Cumberland County and is in the south part of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. It sits along the Maurice River that has been dammed for drainage and flood control. The area where the present-day Vineland stands were established when Charles K. Landis purchased almost 13,000 hectares of tract land in 1861 and then brought the settlers from New England and Italy. Vineland later became a part of the Landis Township in 1864 and was then incorporated as a borough in 1880 and eventually became a city in 1952. It has become a market for truck-farming and raising poultry in the region, and has also diversified its economy with manufacturers that include glass, chemicals, and clothing.
