“With 25 towns throughout the region ranked for this recognition, it’s truly an honor to have Haddonfield recognized as the #1 town to live, work and visit, not only in the county but in the South Jersey region,” said Haddonfield Mayor Neal Rochford. “We hope that this continued recognition will encourage those who haven’t experienced our historic town, to come and visit for the day when in the Delaware Valley area,” he continued.
