Mullica Hill is a census-designated place (CDP) and unincorporated community located within Harrison Township, in Gloucester County, New Jersey. Spicerville was the name of a village on the south bank of Raccoon Creek, which is also called Raccoon River, named after prominent landowner Jacob Spicer. Mullica Hill originally referred to the village on the north bank of Raccoon Creek, named after the sons of Eric Pålsson Mullica, whose sons William, Eric and John Mullica began purchasing land here in 1704. Eventually, both villages became known as just Mullica Hill as the original name of Eric’s grandfather’s house in the Middle of Finland “Mullikkamäki” (mäki means hill). Most of Mullica Hill’s historic buildings were built following the Civil War. In 1991, the entire village was placed on the National Register of Historic Places as the Mullica Hill Historic District.
