Camden, NJ


ROSS STREET runs east from 1046 Orchard Street for one block where it terminates opposite 1038 Louis Street, between Mt. Vernon and Chestnut Streets, in a neighborhood that was settled around the turn of the century by many Polish immigrant families. The west end of Ross Street was opposite the main building of the old Camden Pottery factory, another building of the old factory takes up much of the south side. 

At one time seven homes stood on Ross Street, four on the north side and three on the south. All were gone by 2007. Everything was destroyed in 2011 in what was known as the Reliable Tire fire, which engulfed the entire Camden Pottery site and destroyed many homes on Mount Vernon, Louis, Orchard, and Chestnut Streets.

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