Girard Place


GIRARD PLACE was a short, dead end street that runs east from 916 St. John Street. Girard Place first appears in Camden City Directories in 1890. By that year eleven homes had been built. It was later extended out to Newton Avenue after the frame dwellings at 915 Newton Avenue were razed. By 1947 only five were standing, and only one, 570 Girard Place, was standing an occupied by 1980. This home was still standing and occupied in 2016. Girard Place as a street has disappeared, with 570 Girard Place only accessible from Newton Avenue.

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