Kaighn
Avenue


Soon after John Kaighn purchased 460 acres from Robert Turner in 1696, a lane was established connecting his plantation with the already established settlement on Newton Creek. While the course of this lane is not exactly known, it is almost certain, from the topography of the ground and the fact that the Indian trail to Haddonfield already existed, that it closely followed the line of the present Kaighn Avenue, which in the early days and deeds dated before 1730 is called Kaighn’s Lane, or Kaighn’s Point Lane or Avenue. When Kaighnton was laid out in 1810 it had become an established thoroughfare.*

With the establishment of a ferry at Kaighn's Point, Kaighn Avenue's position as a street for commerce an industry was guaranteed. Important businesses located on Kaighn Avenue during the 19th century included the Capewell Glass Works and John Cooper's lumber, ice, and coal business. Around the turn of the century Kaighn Avenue near Broadway became one of the premier retail streets in Camden, with many Jewish-American business finding success. When the Parkside section of Camden was developed, Kaighn Avenue east of Haddon Avenue became one of the more fashionable neighborhoods in the city, with several churches built between Haddon Avenue and Park Boulevard, and palatial homes built on Kaighn Avenue opposite Farnham Park.  

Kaighn Avenue between Ninth and Tenth Streets has been the scene of flooding when severe rain storms occur near high tide. One such flood occurred on August 11, 1958 and was photographed by Bob Bartosz. These photos are presented below.

The Kaighn's Point & Philadelphia Ferry

Joseph Cooper established the first ferry here, at the foot of Ferry Street and what is now Kaighn Avenue. The ferry operated under different owners through the 1800s. The terminal depicted at left was built in 1880. On May 29, 1889, the Atlantic City Railway Company, a subsidiary of the Reading Railroad, was authorized to lay tracks so as to connect with the ferry at Kaighn's Point.

In the spring of 1922, work began on a new ferry and railroad terminal, which was completed in 1924. Sadly, the new facility was doomed almost as soon as it opened, as the Delaware River Bridge was opened for traffic in 1926. The ferry and the passenger trains ran from here for a number of years, but in time all the ferries in Camden stopped running.

Ferry Hotel
aka 
Joseph Kaighn House

The Ferry Hotel at the foot of Kaighn Avenue and near the Ferry House, was built in 1864 by Dorman & Stout, the contractors for the owner, John E. Reese. Hugh Miller was the first proprietor and kept it until 1868, when it was leased to John Bamford, who has since conducted it.

George Reeser Prowell, 1886

John Bamford operated the Ferry Hotel until it was razed in 1889, when the Atlantic City Railway Company, a subsidiary of the Reading Railroad, laid tracks so as to connect with the ferry at Kaighn's Point.

South Ferry Hotel
aka 
Joseph Kaighn House

Built prior to the Revolutionary War, during the British occupation of Philadelphia one of their cannon balls pierced the brick wall of the chimney, and rolled out on the hearth of the open fireplace. As a relic connecting Camden’s history with the  events of the Revolution it was exhibited at the great Sanitary Fair, held in Logan Square In Philadelphia, in 1864, which realized over $1,000,000 in aid of the sick and wounded Union soldiers of the Civil War.

The South Ferry Hotel, located at the southeast corner of Kaighn Avenue and Front Street, has been known to the citizens of Camden as a hotel, and its gardens as a place of resort, for more than a century (1886). Originally it was a farmhouse built by one of the Kaighn family’ the exact date when it was converted into a hotel is unknown, but the names of the landlords are familiar to the old residents, and include Adon Wills, Ebenzer Toole, Captain George Bender, Hewlings Haines, Aaron Hillman William Bryant, John Kinsell, Daniel W. Beckley, Abraham Smith, Sothron Norcross, ex-Sheriff Leeds, Daniel Wells, William Sands, Theodore Krug, and the present proprietor, John Korn

When first opened as a hotel it was close by the river-bank, and the ferry-boats, when started, had their slip across the street. The hotel is now nearly two squares away from the Kaighn's Point Ferry, the intervening ground having being filled in and built up to within a short distance of the ferry slip. It, however, still retains the name of South Ferry Hotel. A century ago it was a famous place of resort in the summer days for citizens of Philadelphia.

-History of Camden County, New Jersey
George Reeser Prowell, 1886

Around 1900 the South Ferry Hotel was razed to accomodate an expansion of the railroad yard at South Front Street and Kaighn Avenue. - PMC

POLICE CAN’T STOP RELIGIOUS RACKETS
Prosecutor's Office Indicates Law Is Powerless to Act

The Philadelphia district attorney's office is powerless to curb racketeers so long as they operate under the guise of a religious organization,

That, was admitted yesterday by Patrick J. McKewen, chief of the Philadelphia county detectives, who acted as spokesman for the prosecutor's office.

McKewen made the statement when questioned upon what action would be taken against Nicholas Cavallucci, founder and president of the "Home Missionary Relief Worker's Association, Inc." alleged racketeering charity organization,

Cavallucci has established a network of 10 "missions" employing nearly 200 solicitors on a fifty-fifty basis.

The charity association was exposed Monday by newspapers. Following the expose, McKewen admitted that Cavallucci's activities have been under police surveillance for some time and that the "mission" head, recently had been taken to the Philadelphia district attorney's office on charges of running a punch-board racket, Cavallucci was released when he promised to discontinue this sideline.

Camden headquarters of the association, 131 Kaighn Avenue, was dark last night and no one answered the door bell.

I remember my Grandfather talking about the restaurant he owned around 2nd and Kaighn Avenue. It was called "Purcell's Seafood House", and I vaguely remember seeing a photo of my Grandfather standing in front of two large plate glass windows, with the entrance in between them, and a large fern on a pedestal in each window. He was rather short and rotund and had a large white apron on and was smiling with his hands on his hips. He was old and blind when I was a young child (born in 1937) but he told such interesting stories. 

His marriage certificate dated 1905 to Miss Katie Sullivan states his occupation as "restaurant keeper" in Camden, NJ. I remember being told the restaurant failed because "the ferry closed down when the bridge opened up" and he was never the same after that.

On Kaighn Avenue there was a joined complex of store front plate glass windowed buildings starting at #131 Sister Emily's Mission Church, and #133, residence of Anthony and Catherine Ranieri.  My Uncle "Puss", Henry C. Block owned and operated a storage room with door at #135, then a single doorway providing access to the rear and second floor at #135 (same number), and finally the restaurant at #137.  Prior owners were the Brong's whose grandson Francis Marshall was my brother Neil's best friend. The final building in the complex was (in my day) a bricked up front that housed Gaudio's first frozen food locker, #139, followed by Gaudio's officially at 141 Kaighn Avenue

Kaplan & Zubrin Pickle Products

My father and uncle- Louis Zubrin and Herman Kaplan, brother-in-laws- started the company at 10th and Pine Street in 1940. They moved the processing to 713 Kaighn Avenue a few years later, retaining the warehouse at on Pine for barrel storage and coopering (barrel repairs).  Around 1955 they built a new building at 2nd and Kaighn Avenue, adding on twice in the following years as they grew.  In the 60s they built the building across the street on the northwest corner.  

Lou Zubrin died suddenly in 1959 at age 54 and Mr. Kaplan bought out my mother soon after.  Herman Kaplan died around 1974 and his sons Ronald and Richard have owned and operated the business ever since.  They have worked very hard to build it to what it is today. My father and uncle would be very proud of them.  

My brothers and I worked in the business as teenagers but pursued other careers.  My eldest brother Jay R. Zubrin is a general surgeon in Newport Beach Ca.  My other brother, Robert H. Zubrin is a retired musician and sells real estate in Palm Springs, CA and I am a general contractor in Washington Township, Gloucester County.  

My mother was a Teitelman, my father's mother a Ruttenberg.  Our family and extended families are an important part of the history of the Jewish community in southern New Jersey.  We are also related to the Bookbinders and Denbos. My grandfather was Meyer Teitelman who has in the grocery business and along with his brothers, real estate.

The small white rectangular box between the second and third floor on 341-347 Kaighn Avenue was a marble sign that read Furey Hall 1887. In the early 2000s the building was stuccoed and all the old brick and trim work has been covered over.

The  building has a staircase the end of the 4th Street side and a service elevator.

I remember when TV first became popular. Before we had one the House of Ruttenberg's on Kaighn Avenue had TV sets in front display window with loud speakers outside so you could hear TV and see TV in action. I remember my grandfather putting newspaper inside our coats to keep us warm and going over to Kaighn Avenue to watch the Lone Ranger. There would be a large crowd of people watching even through it was cold as hell. He thought TV was marvelous thing-

INVISIBLE EYEGLASSES BEING OFFERED HERE

Invisible optical glasses as an aid to better vision.

That is the latest invention and they are being offered to Camden residents for the first time by Dr. S. L. Yubas, of 431 Kaighn Avenue. They are known as contact glasses.

They are a saucer shaped glass, which is worn under the eyelid in direct contact with the eye itself. These glasses can hardly be seen while the patient is wearing them.

Stage and screen luminaries are said to favor them. Libby Holman is reputed to be one of the staunch users. Joan Crawford, famous screen star, uses them in the studios.

"The secret of it lays not in the main disc itself but a smaller super­imposed disc inside," Dr. Yubas says. "Inside this small disc is a patented liquid, the key to the optical aid. Some people may think this will injure the eye but it will not hurt them as it sets on the white of the eye ball."

W. J. ROSS, HATS AND CAPS
433 KAIGHN'S AVENUE,

Among the many pioneers of this neighborhood, Mr. Ross has been as successful as any. Six years ago this gentleman opened a small store just opposite, devoted exclusively to the sale of men's hats and caps, and finding that the business was growing, larger quarters were secured two years ago at the present beautiful store. The store proper is about 25 by 35 feet.

Mr. Ross has been a life-long resident of Camden, and in the days of the old Fire Department was one of the many faithful watchers who looked so carefully after the house-
owners' interest. Later he has connected himself with the Red Men, Golden Eagles, Odd Fellows, and the Independent Order of Mechanics.

DR. W. J. COLLINS, DRUGS
451 KAIGHN'S AVENUE,

Perhaps no physician in the city has a larger and more lucrative practice than Dr. Collins, and yet he finds time in his spare moments to keep an eye on his large Drug business.

About three years ago he purchased the store from Dr. Haney, now deceased. A large store is occupied, the dimensions of which are 20 feet front on Kaighn's avenue and 35 feet deep. All the fresh Drugs are kept on hand; a specialty is made of carefully filling prescriptions. A full line of all Fancy Goods is kept -all kinds of Perfumery, Soaps, etc.; all the best brands of Segars, and a large Soda Fountain.

Three capable assistants are employed.

Dr. Collins is a graduate of the Jeffgrson Medical College, and is a native of Delaware, but has become
one of Camden's esteemed citizens. He is prominently connected with the Masons and other organizations of the same character.

Toone & Hollinshed
Later A.G. McCrory's

The 1880  census shows that Isaac C. Toone made his residence at 463 Kaighn Avenue, where he had his store. He later took on a partner, and the building seen at left was erected, By World War I the business and the property had passed into the hands of A.G. McCrory. 

A disastrous fire on December 14, 1921 destroyed the former Toone & Hollinshed Department Store, totally wrecked the Sargal Shoe Store and damaged five other business houses, entailing a loss of $200,000.

A.G. McCrory's 5 & 10 Cent Store remained in business under that name into the 1990s, and remains open for business today, under new ownership. The postal address for the building, at Broadway and Kaighn Avenue is 455 Kaighn, although the building has a far greater frontage on Broadway. Card is based on photograph taken after 1910.

THIEF BITES OFF END OF CAPTOR'S FINGER

Seized by the owner of a bicycle which he allegedly was trying to steal, Thomas Fletcher, 25, of 814 South Second street, bit off the end of Herman Lundy's right forefinger last night at Broadway and Liberty streets in his efforts to escape.

Lundy, 19, of 530 Kaighn avenue, clung to Fletcher, however, until Police Sergeant Nathan Pettit and Patrolman Marshall Thompson arrived and arrested the man. He was charged with mayhem and attempted larceny.

The police rushed Fletcher to detective headquarters as an angry throng of more than 50 men assembled and began muttering ominously against the prisoner.

Lundy told police he saw Fletcher attempt to take his bicycle, parked near the butcher shop where he worked, and that someone called police while he grappled with the man.

BIKE THIEF SENTENCED ON CHARGE OF MAYHEM

Charged with mayhem and larceny, Thomas Fletcher, 25, of 814 South Second street, was sentenced yesterday to six months in jail on the latter charge by Police Judge Mariano and held in $5000 bail for the Grand Jury on the other charge.

Appearing against Fletcher was Herman Lundy, 19, of 530 Kaighn avenue, his left hand in a sling. 

Lundy charged that Fletcher bit off the end of his left forefinger when he grappled with the man to prevent theft of his bicycle.

Sergeant Nathan Pettit and Patrolman Marshall Thompson, who arrested Fletcher, told Judge Mariano that 200 persons were assembled around the man and threatening him when they arrived at the scene.

Fletcher told the court he was drunk. The policemen said he was not. They told Judge Mariano that Fletcher recently was released from Ancora, where he had served six months on a larceny charge..

We moved from Ablett Village to that address in November 1948 when my parents opened Max's Virginia Market, a small meat and grocery store that specialized in Southern products. I maintain my folks were selling "Soul food" before the term had been invented. I have many memories of that neighborhood and the people in it.....Herman Weinraub, the tailor, Jack Volk and his father-in-law George Somers, the locksmiths; Eddie Bond, the bar owner; Hoffman, the baker; Zuckerman, the deli man; "old man" Fox and his son, a (friendly) competitor of my folks; Gus, the Greek, who had the diner on the corner. I'm pretty sure Ross Plumbing & Heating replaced our old coal-fired heating/hot water system with an oil heating system, probably around 1951. 

Sam Sklar was our barber, Had a shop just across Kaighn Avenue from my Dad's store. His kids were Eddie and Harold. Weinraub, the tailor, who lived on the corner of Kaighn and Baring St. had kids Alfie, Nissie, and Barbara (another daughter's name escapes me). My sister is still close to Barbara. My folks had the store from November 1948 until around the early-to-mid '60's. They sold it after my Dad had a series of heart attacks. I have a great story about how my mother saved Eddie Bond's "bacon" just before his bar was raided by the cops. He was so grateful he put the word out on the street that NOBODY better mess with my family or the store....and he really had clout back then. I used to walk to school....Hatch Jr., then Camden High School from the store....we lived behind and above it.

MAN JAILED 6 MONTHS FOR THEFT OF WATCH

Found guilty of stealing $25 and a wrist watch from a man who came to Camden for liquid refreshments John Cheek, 27, colored, of 735 Kaighn Avenue, was sentenced to six months in jail by Judge Garfield Pancoast in Camden Police Court yesterday. 

His accuser, William Henninger, of Ardmore, Pennsylvania, was roundly scored by Judge Pancoast for coming here to drink beer, and was warned to stay away from Camden. Henninger said Cheek attacked and robbed him near Second and Pine Streets. John Barton, 25, of 830 South Second street, and Viola Lewis, 39, of 315 Division Street, both colored, who were arrested on suspicion, were exonerated and freed. Detective Benjamin Simon said the stolen wrist watch and $3.75 were found on Cheek.

The watch was returned to the victim, William Hemminger, of Ardmore, last night after police had arrested John Cheek, 27, of 735 Kaighn Avenue; John Barton, 25, ,of 830 South Second street, and Viola Lewis, 39, of 315 Division Street.

FIREMEN RESCUE CAT ENTANGLED IN WIRES

Nearly 500 persons gathered at Tenth Street and Kaighn avenue yesterday to watch policemen and firemen recover a cat that had climbed up a pole and become entangled in telephone wires.

The crowd began to gather when a resident nearby saw the cat's predicament and tried to persuade it to come down. Tabby simply couldn't make the return trip. The Second Police District patrol was summoned. Without a ladder or climbing irons, its crew was powerless. 

Fire Truck Co. No.2, Sixth Street and Kaighn Avenue, was called. Its men threw up a ladder and the cat soon was safety back to earth. In the absence of anyone identifying it, it was placed in a nearby drug store.

YOUNG WIFE FOUND BEATEN ON STREET 
Charges She Was Robbed -­ Estranged Husband Identifies Her

Blackjacked and contending she was robbed, a pretty 20-year-old South Camden married woman is in Cooper Hospital with a fractured skull. Her condition is reported as serious.

The woman was identified yester day as Mrs. Margaret Templeton by her husband, William Templeton, of 722 Cherry Street. He said he has been estranged from her for some time.

Police are searching for the driver of a taxi and a man known to them as "Harry," whom the injured woman told police took her from a cafe in Gloucester. 

Police learned Mrs. Templeton and a man were deposited at Second and Penn Streets from a taxicab at 1:40 a. m. The woman was found on the same corner at 6:30 a. m. 

She first told police her name was Martha Shay and later changed it to Margaret Shane. She gave an address at 401 Kaighn Avenue, but was not known there. Then she said she lived at the Cherry Street address of her husband. He denied this, although he identified her. 

Police say the woman was struck over the head with a blackjack or blunt instrument. She will be questioned further when her condition improves. 

It was learned last night that Mrs. Templeton has been living a 1148 Kaighn Avenue.
