James
Court


JAMES COURT was a short street that ran east from 114 Point Street between Pearl and Birch Street. There were only six houses on James Court, all on the north side. James Court appears in the 1863-1864 City Directory and last appears in the 1919 Camden City Directory. By 1920 the street was no longer listed. Any trace that may have still existed of James Court was erased when the Delaware River Bridge was built in the early 1920s.

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