Princeton Avenue


PRINCETON AVENUE, "The best houses for the least amount of money ever built in Camden" according to a 1902 advertisement, runs for one block, parallel east of South 7th Street between Pine and Division Streets. Built by the Lorigan & Hurley, a partnership consisting of builder William J. Lorigan and department store magnate William Leonard Hurley, the homes featured eight rooms and a bath, tiled vestibule, and an elevated and roofed front porch. 

Do you have a Princeton Avenue memory or picture. Let me know by e-mail so it can be included here.

Princeton Avenue Memories

Looking toward Pine the East corner is the house that is next to the house I was born in, the back yards of of those houses had an alley going from Division to Pine. My grandmother's house at 747 Division was at the corner of Division. The back yard of that East corner house, at the Pine Srtreet end of the alley, was a pickle factory. Its back wall was at the back end of my Grandmothers yard.
