“68 Square Miles of Opportunity” Or at least that’s what the flyer the Forosisky family received when they first moved to Vineland said…
First called Landisville by its founder Charles Landis, Vineland came to be known by its present name in 1861. The center for scientific glassware production, farming and manufacturing in Southern NJ, it is located 41 miles east of Philadelphia and roughly 41 miles west of Atlantic City. (Please note, that because of Vineland’s sheer size, mileage to Philly and AC can vary quite a bit!) According to the 2010 census, Vineland’s population was 61,500.
