Linden Terrace Residents Database (Linden Street, Fourth to Fifth Streets)

Title

Linden Terrace Residents Database (Linden Street, Fourth to Fifth Streets)

Description

Data about past residents of the 400 block of Linden Street in Camden, NJ. Developed in 1871, this block known as Linden Terrace was a distinctive development of 34 stone-facade row houses on a widened street landscaped with three oval parks with fountains. The block began to lose its coherence in the 1920s and 1930s when some houses on the north side were demolished for construction of the Benjamin Franklin Bridge and light rail to Philadelphia. Urban renewal to create the Rutgers-Camden campus took down the rest of the block in 1962-66. The site is now occupied by Armitage Hall and its adjacent parking lot.
