The area that is now Jericho, began as part of the plantation belonging to Robert Williams in the mid-1600s. Many of the early settlers were Quakers and members of the Society of Friends, who had come to the new world to avoid persecution. Most were farmers and by 1692 the settlement’s name was changed to Jericho, in memory of the biblical city of Jericho. The community suffered under the British occupation during the Revolutionary War and the Quaker citizens protested the war and everything that came with it. After the war the community flourished. A meeting house was built in 1788 and a school followed in 1793. Development was slow and it was not until the 1950s that development really kicked in. Land was sold to developers of suburban housing and a shift began from a rural community to a suburban one.
