It's no mistake Wawa is such a recognizable presence in the area.
Wawa, though based in Pennsylvania, has its roots in South Jersey. The Wood family from Millville dates back in the area to the mid-1700s.
The family owned an iron forge and mill in the area around 200 years ago, and dammed the Maurice River, creating Union Lake. The family's companies employed more than 1000 people in 1917.
The family started the Wawa chain in 1964 and sold Union Lake and more than 4,600 acres of land to the state in 1982 for about $3.1 million.
