CAMDEN, NEW JERSEY
800 Linden Street
Southeast Corner of North 8th and Linden Streets
This building became a bar sometime after 1891. In the 1880s the building was the home of Joseph and Mary B. Wills. By 1887 Mary was a widow. Her son Richard A Wills operated a plumbing supply house at 213 Market Street in the late 1880s. Mary B. Wills remarried a bricklayer named Kellum by 1890. In that year it appears that the first floor was rented to a druggist named Wendell Wingender.
By 1903 the building at 800 Linden Street had become a bar. James P. Daly was the proprietor until his passing on August 26, 1922 at the age of 49. The bar remained in the family, run buy James J. Daly, who lived across the street at 728 Linden Street, until at least 1947, during which time it was known as Daly's Cafe.
By 1952 the bar was known as the Linden Grill, and was still in operation as late as 1959. By 1966 it was gone. The building is no longer standing.
