Morrison
Street


MORRISON STREET in East Camden and originally ran from North 27th Street to the rairoad tracks that lay just beyond Dudley Street. When the 1906 Sanborn Mao was published there were no houses or businesses in the 2700 and 2800 blocks of Morrison Street. In the 2900 block there were 4 wood frame-built buildings and an old and vacant frame-built church. In the 3000 block five frame buildings were standing. 

By 1923 there were only two homes left in the 2900 block of Morrison Street, and four in the 3000 block, and they were still there in 1947. At some point the 2700 and 2800 blocks were erased. By the 1980s the two homes in the 2900 block were gone, and as this block had never been paved, it became a street in name only. Over the years all but two homes, 3021 and 3025 Morrison Street, disappeared. They are still occupied as of 2012. 

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