The township consists primarily of four small villages, Oldwick, Mountainville, Pottersville and Cokesbury, each with historic districts included in the National Register. Long known for being an agricultural community since before its founding in 1755, Tewksbury has retained many of its agricultural traits, even while residential development has been established in many areas, large portions remain as they were 250 years ago. Tewksbury remains committed to its heritage through aggressive land conservation efforts with approximately 3,500 acres being preserved to date. The township is also a favorite among the equestrian set with numerous horse farms of all sizes dotting the landscape including 100 miles of horseback riding trails maintained by the Tewksbury Trail Association. On weekends, bicyclists are drawn to the area for its scenic roadways and a pit stop at the Oldwick General Store, one of the first and oldest commercial buildings in town dating back to 1750.
Notable places in town include the Tewksbury Inn, Oldwick General Store, Zion Evangelical Lutheran Church, The Magic Shop, Melick’s Farm Market along with the many historical sites located in the outlying villages.

Cultural and community activities include the annual Pottersville Antique Show, Tewksbury Harvest Festival, Tewksbury Art Show, and the Barn Dance & Auction to name a few.
