Arthur Avenue


ARTHUR AVENUE, named for U.S. President Chester A. Arthur, is in the Cramer Hill section of Camden. The street had been laid out by 1887, and as Chester Arthur was not President until late 1881, was not so named until after that had occurred.

Pre-World War I maps show Arthur Avenue running along the railroad line by the Pavonia Car Shop beginning at East State Street. The railroad switching yards had so expanded that by the time the second map below, in 1946, was published, Arthur Avenue began at North 24th Street. Since those times, the street runs from North 24th Street east, across North 27th Street to North 29th Street, ending at what was Baldwin's Run and what since about 1950 is known as Von Nieda Park.

The east side of Veterans Memorial Junior High School, built in 1938, is on Arthur Avenue between North 24th and North 25th Streets. The east side of Veterans Park, which had been the city reservoir in the 1800s, is on Arthur Avenue between North 25th and North 27th Streets.

Do you have an Arthur Avenue memory or picture. Let me know by e-mail so it can be included here.
