Camden, NJ

11th
Street


ELEVENTH STREET ran north, from Market Street all the way through to Pearl Street. Over time North 11th Street was erased, block by block, until all that remains is a segment between Penn and Linden Streets, with six occupied rowhomes.

South 11th Street is somewhat of an artificial construct, being that it the name given to the connecting road that runs south from Federal Street then elbows east and north, carrying it over the Admiral Wilson Boulevard and terminating at Federal Street north of the Cooper River. At one time it ran underneath the railroad tracks to the front of the National Guard Armory which became Camden's Public Workds building. There are no and to my knowledge have never been any South 11th Street addresses. 

Do you have a Eleventh Street memory or picture. Let me know by e-mail so it can be included here.

131 North 11th Street served as a bar and/or liquor store as early as 1883 until it was closed and razed. 

A former volunteer fireman and at one-time a  member of the Camden Fire Department, Henry Frost's real avocation and to some extent occupation was as a dog fighter. His bulldog, "Whitey", won numerous fights and a good deal of money for Henry Frost, both in Camden and in other large cities in the northeast. In the spring of 1883 the dog was stolen, and Henry Frost began drinking to excess. As a former member of the Weccacoe Fire Company No. 2, Henry Frost realized a bit of money when their old firehouse at 503 Benson Street was sold in 1883. With the money he received he opened a small saloon at North 11th and Carpenter Streets, where he died on December 28, 1883. Henry Frost was survived by his wife Sarah, who operated the business for about a year, appearing in the 1884-1885 City Directory as "Frost Sarah, liquors, 11th and Carpenter". She sold the business to John Q. Meiler.
