12th
Street


There are two TWELFTH STREETs in Camden, one north, one south, that share nothing but a name. North 12th Street ran at one time from Federal Street north to the Cooper River, and had some homes, industries including the Moro Phillips chemical works and the N.B. Greaves varnish factory, a baseball stadium and at its northern end, five frame homes and four boathouse. Highway construction has pretty much obliterated the street, it still appears on maps, between Federal and Penn Streets, but there are no addresses or buildings. A very small section of what was North 12th Street between Penn and Linden Streets appears on maps as Penn Street.
South 12th Street runs from Fairview Street to Lakeshore Drive and has rowhouses all built after World War II. 

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