Wenonah was founded in 1871 by Philadelphia businessmen as a country resort. Its location along the Mantua Creek and on the West Jersey Railroad made it a convenient get-away. Over the next 40 years, numerous dams were installed to create recreational lakes. From 1902 until the Great Depression, Wenonah Military Academy, a private military school, trained cadets there.
Throughout its history, Wenonah has been almost exclusively a residential area. Over 20% of the borough's area is conservation land, which is protected by ordinance from development. Over five miles of hiking trails are threaded around lakes and alongside waterways in these conserved areas.
