Camden, NJ

Cammer's Court
aka Dudley's Court & Cramer's Court

CAMMER'S COURT is listed in Camden City Directories as Dudley's Court in 1863, and was listed that way in City Directories through 1883. In the 1870s some listings began to be shown as Cammer's Court. The 1884 City Directory and 1885 Sanborn Map show the street as Cammer's Court. Cammer's Court ran south from Pine Street for one-half block between the dwelling at 512 Pine Street and the Turn Hall, also known as Turner Hall and Turn Verein Hall, at 516 Pine Street.  

The 1885 Sanborn Map shows a single building "Tenmnt", most likely a tenement, on Cammer's Court. 1891 Sanborn Map shows that four house had been built on that spot. Another name change seems to have taken place, as beginning in 1913 the street began being referred to in City Directories as Cramer's Court. The street does not appear in City Directories after 1917.  It appears to have been "consumed" along with the Turn Hall when the Hurley Store at Broadway and Pine Street built a warehouse at the rear of the store, along Pine Street, west of Welsh Street.

Do you have a Cammer's Court memory or picture. Let me know by e-mail so it can be included here.
