Originally a colonial settlement, the town Mount Ephraim came into popularity by a man named Ephraim Albertson, who owned the Public House, also called the Old Tavern, a popular meeting place at Black Horse Pike & Kings Highway from 1800 to 1825. Stagecoach companies operating between Camden, Philadelphia, and the coast chose Albertson´┐Żs tavern as a station. He supplied fresh horses for the stages, and maintained a large stable and carriage shed in addition to the inn. Mount Ephraim took its name from his name.

In 1855, Center Township was formed. It included what is now Mt. Ephraim, Runnemede, Bellmawr, Brooklawn, Magnolia, Barrington and Lawnside. The first township meeting was held at the Public House.
