Westfield Avenue


WESTFIELD AVENUE was officially known as the Westfield and Camden Turnpike was more popularly known as the Burlington Turnpike. Another one of the old privately built and maintained, it was purchased by local government in May of 1904 for a cost of over $32,000 in response to protests of the citizenry over paying tolls for roads that were not kept in a well-maintained state. Other streets in present-day Camden that were taken over by government around this time included the White Horse Pike (1893), Mount Ephraim Avenue, Marlton Avenue (1907), Haddon Avenue (1909), and Federal Street (1913).

Westfield Avenue had been a toll road. The only tollgate on Westfield Avenue within the city limits of Camden was at 36th Street.

In 1936 the Public Works Administration erected Westfield Acres, Camden's first public housing project. The first tenants moved in during the spring of 1938. Westfield Acres was demolished to make way for the new Baldwin's Run homes in 2000. The new community welcomed its first residents in the spring of 2003.

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

Mom retired as a teacher from Woodrow Wilson but also taught at Camden High School both in the 60s and 70s. Kenneth Klegg was Pack Master and he flew in an EC-121s over Vietnam in the early 1950s before anyone knew about Vietnam.

My mother told me there were orchards around the left side of the house. There was no street on the right side of the house where Dudley St. is now. This area of Camden was called Stockton back in 1894, when my Grandmother was born there. But you probably knew that. Mom said she used to play tag running around the bushes in the front yard. The yard is significantly cut back because of the enlargement of the street. There were a number of barns in the back. All that is left now is one medium sized out-building that is used as a garage.

The building was rented to a black Muslim sect, who had been run out of North Camden. In these years, the Camden Police had a substation more or less directly across the street, and this house was kept under survellance. The Muslims abandoned the property and reportedly moved to Cleveland, Ohio. The building, which had been trashed and defaced with Islamic graffitti, was then razed.

To the Editor:

Sir-Will someone please tell Mr. Meves that selective breeding of the mind is impossible. '

Suppose we are a product of evolution. Just what would Mr. Meves' have us evolve to instead of human beings?

Mr. Meves would have us believe the unintelligent majority elected Mr. Roosevelt. Who elected Mr. Hoover, the intelligent minority?

POWELL—In loving memory of our dear father, Charles B. Powell, whom God called home one year ago today, Feb. 7, 1937. 
Gone, dear father, gone forever,
How we miss your smiling face, 
But you left us to remember 
None on earth can take, your place. 
A happy home we once enjoyed,
How sweet the memory still, 
But death has left a lonesomeness,
The world can never fill.

Sadly missed by. Daughters and Sons
and Grandchildren. . .

HUSBAND, WOMAN HELD ON CHARGE WIFE MAKES

Mrs. Bessie A. Gaunt, of 4115 Westfield Avenue, yesterday appeared in police court and charged her husband, Emerson Gaunt, 32, of 840 Pearl Street, and Mrs. Nellie Olsen, 33, of 408 North Seventh Street, with misconduct.

The Gaunts have been estranged for some four years. Mrs. Gaunt told Police Judge Pancoast she had been keeping her husband under surveillance of late and on May 15, followed him to the Olsen home. Mrs. Gaunt said she parked her car near the house and saw her husband enter.

Detective John Trout and Walter Smith arrested both Gaunt and Mrs. Olsen in the latter's house at 8 p. m. on May 30.

Judge Pancoast held Gaunt and Mrs. Olsen in $500 bail each for the grand jury.

Reminds me of when I first rode my bike (about 1949) out to the end of Westfield Avenue past Cove Road, and caught the view of Crescent Boulevard... then New Jersey Route 25.... sweeping past the diner and heading North to who knew what adventures. The view was just breathtaking; dual lanes in both directions with wide grass islands for medians.
