Welcome to a site dedicated to the fascinating and local history of Camden, New Jersey. Camden is just across the river from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and, while it is not the city it once was, there is a rich story to be told. From the founding of a quaint little settlement by the Coopers, through the acquisition of surrounding towns, muddy and dirt roads, the addition of the automobile, becoming a town, and eventually a vibrant city with industry leaders, remnants of Camden's history are all around you, if you know where to look. And we will help you do just that.
Using the menu and search functionality, you may find that the dirt trail used to be a street. Maybe you are searching for information about your relatives. Maybe you are checking out our news archives for Camden News. Or perhaps you are just browsing! Regardless of your reason, join us!
