Deptford is a township in Gloucester County, New Jersey. The township dates back to 1695, at which time it was incorporated as Bethlehem Township. Over the years, parts of the township were taken to create other townships and boroughs. It was the site of the first hot air balloon landing in North America, when Jean-Pierre Blanchard completed his flight to Deptford from Philadelphia in 1793 while carrying a personal letter from George Washington.
