Twenty-Second
Street


TWENTY-SECOND STREET begins in what was originally called the Pavonia section of what is now considered Cramer Hill and ends in East Camden at Federal Street. The street had already been laid out by the time the 1887-1888 Camden City Directory was published. The street begins at Harrison Avenue and runs south, across River Road to the Pavonia railroad switching yard, then from Howell Street to Federal Street

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

From
"The Old Houses in Camden, N.J."
By
Charles Shimer Boyer

"When Samuel Cooper decided to move from the ferry-house at Cooper's Point (known as "Cooper's Point Hotel") to his farm, which he called "Pleasant View Farm," now covered by a large part of the Eleventh Ward, he erected the spacious mansion, still standing, on Twenty-second street. It is built of bricks, which were said to have been brought from England, and is two and one-half stories in height. Embedded in the north end of the building, in light colored, bricks, are the initials S P During the  ante-bellum days this was one of the "stations" on the line of the "Underground Railroad." In the hollow to the north of the railroad, between the junction of the Trenton and Mount Holly branches was a favorite location for fugitive slaves. He died in this house in 1812, and during his latter life was very active among the Friends, receiving the commendation of the famous Quaker preacher, John Hunt.

A little bit more History on the old colonial farm house on the corner of 22nd Street and Wayne Avenue, the old Samuel Cooper house. For as long as I have known, from 1964, when I was born until late 1979 the house was occupied by my Aunt Jean (nee Hodge) and Uncle Bob (Robert) Catling. They lived there with his daughter Brenda Catling her husband William Gibson Sr. and their children Brenda, Lisa and William Jr. The house is well described in your historical information. The other side of the house was occupied by an older couple of woman, I don’t know much about them, they were kind of private. My uncle was the town’s huckster...he used to go around Cramer Hill and other parts of Camden in his pick-up truck with Lolly. He was the one who used to yell "Fish Man".
