Baird Boulevard
aka
Baird Avenue


BAIRD BOULEVARD, named for Camden businessman, political leader and one-time U.S. Senator David Baird Sr., was laid out early in the 20th Century as part of the development of Camden's Parkside neighborhood. It is one of the three main rods in Parkside. It begins at Kaighn Avenue, running diagonally in a northerly direction, crossing Park Boulevard at Camden High School and Farnham Park. From their Baird Boulevard crosses the Cooper River and Admiral Wilson Boulevard, entering East Camden, where it runs straight through across Marlton Avenue to its terminus, the intersection of Baird Boulevard, Federal Street, and 27th Street- arguably the heart of East Camden.

The street was known as Baird Avenue when originally laid out in the 1900s. Homes began to appear on Baird Avenue after 1906, and there were a few empty lots in the 1500 block as late as 1924, and the Parkside blocks were referred to as Baird Avenue for many years. The East Camden side, above the Cooper River, was laid out by 1924, and from the beginning was called Baird Boulevard. No homes stood on the East Camden blocks of Baird Boulevard in 1924. 

Baird Boulevard was the home of many of Camden's most prominent citizens, from all walks of life- business, law, religion, and even organized crime!

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

Where the trees and "islands" came from...

Camden Courier-Post - January 9, 1928

RESIDENTS PROTEST COOPER STREET WIDENING

 Two of the Cooper Street property owners who appeared at a hearing this morning at City Hall protested assessments to be levied against them for the widening of the thoroughfare from Fourth to Ninth Streets. 

The objectors declared they did not feel that it was fair that they should be taxed for improvements from which they derive no benefit. Their protests were beard by the Commissioner of Assessments in the commission chambers at the hall. 

The commissioners, Charles S. Wolverton, Wilbur B. Ellis, and James F. Lennon, said after the hearing that they will give further consideration to the complaints before submitting their report to the city commission. This will be done, they said, in the case of two complaints from property owners along Baird Boulevard, who protested being taxed for the planting of trees and the grading of “islands” on that thoroughfare from Bank Street lo Maplewood Avenue. A public hearing on this improvement also was conducted this morning. 

Thomas J. Daley, city engineer and clerk of the assessment commission by virtue of his position, explained after the hearing that the two Baird Boulevard property owners said they felt that the expenses of the improvement should be borne by the people who erected the properties along the highway.

Daley said that each abutting property owner on Cooper Street, from Fourth to Ninth Street, will pay an assessment of approximately $5.50 per front foot for the widening. The city taxpayers as a whole, he said, will also bear $5.50 per front foot, the other half of the cost of the improvement. The total cost of the widening, he reported was $35126, of which abutting property owners will pay $17,400, and the city taxpayers about $17,700.

The Baird Boulevard improvement, Daley said, cost a total of $3,020, of which the abutting property owners will pay $2,140 and the city taxpayer, as whole, $880. The cost to such property owner per lot, he explained, will be about $10, all lots being about 20 feet wide.

An assessment on both improvements, Daley reported, will be fixed by the city after the commissioners of assessment file their report. The city commission will then fix a date when property owners who may have objections may appear at a public hearing.

My memory of our block - and what made it The Boulevard - was the gorgeous green swath down the middle that was lined with a double row of majestic elm trees, all removed in the 60's because of Dutch Elm Disease. The curb side of the street was lined with maples.

You really do have to click on the image and see this one enlarged to appreciate it. See the billboard for Hurley's East Camden store in the background, not to mention the rows and rows of tulips on Baird Boulevard! When those who were there said Camden was beautiful, this picture shows they were not kidding! If this only this one had been in color!!!!!

Thanks to Curtis Parrish for furnishing this picture.
