Sherman Avenue


SHERMAN AVENUE is a street that runs north and south between River Road and the railroad in Cramer Hill. Like many of the other north-south streets in that part of Camden, it was laid out in the 1890s and named after Civil War hero General William Tecumseh Sherman. Just about all of the north-south streets in that part of Camden are named for U.S. Presidents or military heroes.

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

Battalion 2 then requested an additional Engine and Battalion 1 which brought Squad 7. Shortly after Battalion 2 also requested an additional Ladder Company to assume the duties of the RIT.
