o matter how long you’ve lived in South Jersey, you need a navigation system now and then. And if you’re new here, well, you really need to fire up that GPS. Either way, this insider guide to South Jersey will help you fully explore and experience the area. We’ve packed this publication with fun features on downtowns, dining, shopping, festivals, family activities and much more to remind you of all that’s here – and to introduce you to places you didn’t know about. Our “Big Ten” lists throughout the guide offer a lighthearted look at who we are and what we like to do. And there are resources, too, so you’ll know what government office to contact if you need help, and what the area offers in higher education and health care. Plus, we shine the spotlight on some South Jersey towns, and give you key details on all 101 of them. With 112 pages of info, this will be your go-to guide all year long. And as for the real highway navigation, we even help with that. See our key to ongoing construction projects on Page 81.

This historic ship was built just across the river during World War II. After it was decommissioned, the ship was returned to Camden and opened as a museum in 2001. It’s now a popular site for tours and annual events such as Beer Fest.

The entire town is a Victorian treasure. From the Cape May Lighthouse, graceful Congress Hall, gorgeous bedand-breakfasts and the restored Emlen Physick Estate, there is eye candy at every turn.

Delsea Drive-In Theatre 2203 S. Delsea Drive, Vineland www.delseadrive-in.com The drive-in movie theater was born in New Jersey; now there is just one left in the state. Restored as a labor of love by a local doctor, the Delsea Drive-In offers double features and a creative concession menu.

Battleship New Jersey 100 Clinton St., Camden

It’s quirky, it’s historic and it’s endangered. This wooden architectural oddity deserves a closer look before storms, lightning or other natural disasters take her away. The kids will love her, and adults will get a kick out of the historic documents and artifacts contained in the elephant-shaped museum.

Roadside farm stands www.jerseyfresh.nj.gov The Garden State’s greatest pride is also its most humble, our own Jersey Fresh produce. The good stuff is still warm from the fields and not always pretty. Our best tip: Buy the ugliest tomato you can find.

homes and beautifully landscaped lawns make this a walkable destination, for holiday shopping, treasure hunting or celebrating a special occasion. Medford hosts many downtown events including antique car shows, Music on Main concerts, a Spring Fling and much more.

Moorestown

By TAMMY PAOLINO Courier-Post Staff

Collingswood

If you’re playing a game of word association, when you say “Collingswood,’’ the other person is likely to say “restaurant.’’ Indeed, the borough just miles from Philadelphia has long since established itself as a dining mecca, with at least 25 eateries in its diminutive 1.9 square miles. Whatever you hunger for, it’s here. Collingswood also offers three big parks, dozens of large community events including Second Saturdays, a Book Festival, an Arts & Crafts Festival, classic car nights and a Green Festival, as well as the area’s most popular farmers market. Shoppers can find some interesting shops along Haddon Avenue, while music lovers can see national acts all year at the Scottish Rite Auditorium. And Perkins Center for the Arts has a satellite in the borough that also offers exhibits, kids’ activities and film screenings.

Haddonfield It would be hard to find a more picturesque downtown. With its deep respect for history, Colonial architecture, gorgeous old homes and thriving downtown, Haddonfield is a great place to visit, shop, dine and stroll. A courtyard gazebo off Kings Highway beckons shoppers to sit for a spell and take in the atmosphere. The shops that line Kings Highway and nearby streets offer visitors everything from high-end running shoes and top couture to funky gifts and baby items. Restaurants run the gamut from casual brunch places to traditional Italian sit-down to ethnic cuisine, as well as an organic juice bar and a mini cupcake boutique that has made visiting that Hadrosaurus statue all the sweeter.

Haddon Heights Visiting this quaint little borough for the first time is like stepping back in time, to an age when shops lined downtown streets and people actually walked. Cafes and restaurants offer eclectic cuisine from tapas to pizza to pastries, and there is always a bustle on the sidewalk as people move from brunch line to karate class.

CHRIS LaCHALL/Courier-Post

Downtowns worth the trip

Main Street in Mullica Hill Community events frequently center on the historic train station, and the borough also offers its own restaurant week.

Merchantville It might not get as much buzz as some of its neighbors, but Merchantville is a quaint downtown with historic architecture, nice sidewalks for strolling, and some inviting stores, cafes and other places to enjoy. The Blue Monkey Tavern, located in the historic Collings House, is a great place to relax and sip a craft beer or dine on a fine meal. Chocolate lovers can head over to Aunt Charlotte’s for some sweet treats. Art lovers can pop into a gallery or two, and car buffs wait all year for the borough’s car and motorcycle show.

Bordentown A quick trip on the RiverLine, or a short drive up 295 brings you to Bordentown, a historic city located above the confluence of the Delaware River, Blacks Creek and Crosswicks Creek. The town is known for having at least three famous residents — Clara Barton, Joseph Bonaparte and Thomas Paine. Approaching the city affords a beautiful view of sailboats at the yacht club, as well as the grand sweep of Bordentown above. The downtown is a vibrant place with charming shops including a bookstore whose owner loves to talk about founding father Thomas Paine, author of “Common Sense.’’ (Ask him how to get to the statue commemorating Paine just a block or two away.) The Record Collector brings in national acts such as Jeffrey Gaines and Graham Parker to its retro music store, and the nearby Dublin Square pub is a great place to take in the sights.

Medford At the edge of the Pine Barrens, the village of Medford affords a fun and vibrant shopping experience, with art galleries, boutiques, gifts and antiques shops, jewelry and other stores perfect for browsing or buying. Dining options include restaurants that offer Italian and Asian favorites, as well as Jamaican cuisine. The town’s historic

This historic Burlington County town has made headlines for being named one of the best places to live in America, and it’s not hard to see why. Its beautiful homes, stately downtown and rich history make it a prime spot. But Moorestown also has plenty to welcome visitors, including Perkins Center for the Arts, a vibrant arts center that offers exhibits, classes for all ages and many other activities. The township hosts numerous community events, including ArtWalk, Autumn in Moorestown and holiday parades. Shops include art galleries, jewelers and even a boutique cupcakery.

Mount Holly If you love history (or ghosts), then this township is for you. One of the oldest communities in the state, it is a veritable walking tour through time. Among the spots you won’t want to miss are: Shinn Curtis Log Cabin, an early settler’s log house; Burlington County Prison, which offers both historic tours and lots of ghosthunting fun; the Old Courthouse Complex, with a bell that announced the signing of the Declaration of Independence; St. Andrew’s Church, Thomas Budd House, Mount Holly Friends Meeting House, and Relief Fire Company No. 1, the oldest continuously used active volunteer fire company in the United States. A dinner at the historic Robin’s Nest is great for a special occasion, and there is a thriving poetry scene at the Daily Grind coffeehouse.

Mullica Hill It’s tough to find a hill in South Jersey, which is mostly very flat. But this part of Gloucester County does offer some rolling hills and beautiful farmland that just calls out to us: “Take a Sunday drive!’’ Mullica Hill is a nice destination for a morning (pancakes at Blue Plate) or afternoon (browsing at the Amish Market) visit. A community beautification program is making the downtown even more attractive for residents and guests. The town hosts Second Saturdays, sidewalk sales, Christmas in the Village holiday festivals and Civil War living history events. Shops will lure art, antiques and collectibles lovers, as well as quilters and those looking for that perfect gift. And don’t miss the Christian bookstore tucked into an old church.

Millville This waterfront shopping district has a charm all its own. Brick buildings will take you back in time as you explore the many shops, along with the arts district. A highlight is the Riverfront Renaissance Center for the Arts, a public gallery focusing on fine arts. Look for Santa -- and horse and carriage rides -- as the holidays draw near. And, of course, leave plenty of time to explore the exhibits, glassblowing demonstrations and other offerings at WheatonArts.

10 Special spots for kids

By SHERI BERKERY Courier-Post Staff

Carousel at Campbell’s Field

401 N. Delaware Ave., Camden (856) 963-2600; www.riversharks.com

All merry-go-rounds have charm, but this one also has an awesome view of two city skylines and a nice breeze off the river. So when the kids get antsy in their seats, climb the steps to the carousel or head behind the first base line to check out the ride-packed Kids Fun Zone.

Discovery Barnyard and Animal Farm Johnson’s Farm 133 Church Road, Medford (609) 654-8643; www.johnsonsfarm.com The animals aren’t the only ones squealing in this kidfriendly corner of Johnson’s Farm, which is also known for pick-your-own produce hayrides. As if checking out

pigs, chicks and sheep wasn’t enough fun, youngsters can climb rocks, visit a play farm and tee-pee town, and drive pedal go-carts (there are separate tracks for older and younger kids).

Subaru Science Shop Garden State Discovery Museum 2040 Springdale Road, Cherry Hill (856) 424-1233; www.discoverymuseum.com Nothing gets kids’ attention like a super-cool science experiment – except the chance to get behind the wheel of a car. Kids can do both in the science exhibit at the hands-on museum. They’ll be captivated by the wind-tunnel effect that whisks a scarf through a maze of tubes, the dark room where they can “write” in neon lights and the old Subaru that they can “drive.”

Stingray Beach Club Adventure Aquarium 1 Riverside Drive, Camden; (856) 365-3300; www.adventureaquarium.com Kids are naturally daring, so most will jump at the chance to pet some friendly stingrays. These gentle creatures swim right up to the edge of the pool. A second pool lower to the ground is available for the toddler crowd.

Field of Dreams Playground

Butterfly House

River Lane, adjacent to Union Field, West Deptford www.westdeptford.com The welcoming park, built by the community 15 years ago, is a giant wooden fortress full of nooks and crannies for kids to climb in, on and through. There’s lots to explore around every corner, including slides, ladders, swings, a balance beam, tires to hop across and more.

Monkeys at Animal Kingdom Zoo 1800 Jacksonville-Jobstown Road, Springfield (609) 267-3111; www.animalkingdomnj.net

Tot lot at Knight Park

JOHN ZIOMEK/Courier-Post

Butterfly House and they all can at Knight Park, which has medievalthemed play equipment, and lots of room for running and fun. The swings, see-saw, slides and climbing apparatus are just right for little tykes. When the kids finally tire out, let them rest in the wagon or stroller and take them around the park for a walk.

Some zoos tell you not to feed the animals, but at this park-like zoo, the rule is just the opposite. Buy a brown bag of trail-mix type food when you enter the zoo, and watch the monkeys dive for the goodies you toss them (hint: they love peanuts). You can also feed the giraffes and other animals.

Every child wants to be king – or queen – of the castle,

Camden Children’s Garden 3 Riverside Drive, Camden (856) 365-8733; www.camdenchildrensgarden.org Kids love chasing butterflies, but usually catch no more than a glimpse of the pretty creatures before they disappear into the sky. At the Butterfly House, there’s no need for a chase: The winged residents inside the tropical environment land on visitors. Kids will enjoy looking at the butterflies’ spectacular patterns and seeing them in their natural environments such as ponds and foliage.

Cape May Lighthouse 215 Light House Ave., Cape May Point (609)-884-5404; www.capemaymac.org You’re always saying the kids should get more exercise, so climbing a 199-step lighthouse should do the trick. Other Jersey Shore lighthouses available for tours are Hereford Inlet lighthouse in North Wildwood, Absecon Lighthouse in Atlantic City and Barnegat Lighthouse at Long Beach Island.

Pine Barrens Education Center Woodford Cedar Run Wildlife Refuge 4 Sawmill Road, Medford (609)-884-5404; www.cedarrun.org The whole refuge gets kids in touch with nature, but the center at the entrance also gives kids a chance to have a wild time. Children can jump on the giant reindeer pillow, touch snakes and see the animal exhibits.

Fantasy Island This family-oriented park has a Victorian theme and, despite catering to children with its bumper cars, kiddie boats, carousel and pirate ship, also could send adult-sized kids into a time warp. A family-friendly casino with arcade games, and ice cream and snack shops help visitors make a night of it. Open 6 to 10 or 11 p.m. most nights during summer season; most rides require three to five tokens, and each token costs 75 cents. 320 7th St., Beach Haven; (609) 492-4000; www.fantasyislandpark.com

Don’t-miss events

By SHERI BERKERY Courier-Post Staff

First Friday

St. Charles Borromeo Carnival in Cinnaminson Parade of Lights

Downtown shopping districts

Haddonfield has First Friday, but depending on what town you’re in, you might have to adjust your calendar to Second Saturday (Collingswood), Fourth Friday (Pitman) or another day of the month. But whenever these dates fall, they’re a great way to spend a lively night in one of South Jersey’s downtowns.

Cruise Nights Silver Diner, 2131 Route 38, Cherry Hill (856) 910-1240; www.silverdiner.com AND Downtown Collingswood www.collingswood.com Classic, muscle, fancy and sporty: All types of cars make their way to these regularly held events. The Silver Diner’s car shows are held weekly on Wednesdays from May to September, and on some holidays. Collingswood rolls out Cruise Night the third Thursday of each month from April to October. Even if you’re not a car nut, it’s worth a visit to see vehicles you’d never spot on the road.

Memorial Day weekend Jersey Shore

It’s crowded, the water’s cold and the weather’s iffy, but the annual pilgrimage marks the start of summer for shore-loving South Jersey. For many of us, Memorial Day weekend is the first of a few visits to the shore town of our choice (and yes, we all have our preferences) that usually end, alas, around Labor Day.

St. Charles Borromeo Carnival St. Charles Parish grounds, Cinnaminson www.scbcarnival.com Sure we’ve all been to neighborhood carnivals, but this one is so big, you’ll find it hard to believe it’s only in town for a week. The folks at St. Charles have been running

this carnival for more than 40 years. The June event has become a tradition among generations of South Jersey residents, who look forward to the rides, pulled-pork sandwiches and the chance to see old friends.

Summer concert series Various locations Grab a blanket or lawn chair, and you’re pretty much set for a summer of entertainment. Free outdoor concerts are a staple at county-sponsored parks, the Promenade shopping center in Marlton, and in many towns. The concerts draw talented musical acts, and residents of all ages who dance, snap their fingers or just sit and enjoy the warm summer breeze.

Fourth of July fireworks Camden Waterfront www.ccparks.com If there’s ever a time to take advantage of our proximity to Philadelphia, it’s during the city’s spectacular Independence Day festivities. The holiday fireworks display over the Delaware River is among the most hightech and colorful around, and you can catch it from Wiggins Waterfront Park in Camden.

Haddonfield sidewalk sale Kings Highway and side streets www.shophaddonfieldnj.com When South Jersey’s chicest shopping area holds its version of a garage sale, you won’t see secondhand couches and a Chia Pet someone got last Christmas. However, you will find formal gowns for 10 bucks, designer labels at half-price and other rare bargains. Haddonfield holds its sidewalk sale in August, so you have a chance to start your holiday shopping nice and early. An indoor version of the sale is held in January.

Haddon Avenue, Collingswood www.collingswood.com All kids think firetrucks are pretty cool, and people of all ages get a kick out of fancy Christmas lights. So combining the two is a magical experience. Families line up with strollers and huddle in the December cold as the illuminated trucks parade down the avenue. It’s a piece of Americana, and a slice of life in South Jersey. Haddon Township also holds a Parade of Lights in December.

Holiday house tours Various locations At the holiday season, people showcase homes to look their best – even if a home is hundreds of years old and no one lives there. The keepers of South Jersey’s historic homes embrace the holidays as a chance to show off. Decked-out homes and other buildings include the Indian King Tavern in Haddonfield, Pomona Hall in Camden and Historic Smithville Mansion in Eastampton. Many holiday house tours also feature private homes.

First Night Downtown Haddonfield www.firstnighthaddonfield.org AND Main Street, Mount Holly www.mainstreetmountholly.com Why stay in and watch the ball drop on New Year’s Eve when you can drop in on a celebration close to home? First Night Haddonfield features dozens of performers at venues throughout town, plus a Kid Zone with puppets and storytelling. First Night Burlington County turns downtown Mount Holly into a festival, with many activities designed around the theme of the Chinese zodiac (2012 will be the Year of the Dragon). Both parties culminate with fireworks.

festivals

Dickens Festival

By SHERI BERKERY Courier-Post Staff

Why go: Medford creates a Victorian Christmas theme with horse-drawn carriages (including one pulling Santa) and costumed carolers. There is one modern touch: A treelighting in the town’s gazebo.

Appel Farm Arts & Music Festival Why go: The setting is Woodstock-meets-rural Jersey, and the music is pure alt-rock, with a bit of blues and folk mixed in. Visitors can shop for handmade jewelry, clothing and other art at a juried craft fair, keep the kids busy at a children’s village, and toast the occasion at a beer and wine tent.

Mark your calendar: Dec. 3. Main Street, Medford; (609) 6542512; www.discovermedford.com

Earth Fair

Mark your calendar: June 2 457 Shirley Road, Elmer; (800) 3948478; www.appelfarm.org

Blackwood Pumpkin Festival Why go: Make your fall more festive with a visit to this event, sponsored by the Mainstage Center for the Arts. Shop for seasonal snacks and crafts, and take in live entertainment. The kids will enjoy hayrides, a petting zoo, face painting, pumpkin painting, a costume contest and more. Mark your calendar: Oct. 2. Church Street and Black Horse Pike, Blackwood; (856) 227-3091; www.mainstage.org

Civil War Living History event Why go: Mullica Hill’s antique shops and historic pedigree already make it a destination for history buffs. But the Civil

Appel Farm Arts & Music Festival War event really showcases the downtown district with an encampment, weapons display, baking on an open fire, and a war re-enactment. Visitors can return to the present by shopping in the town’s many stores.

DENISE HENHOEFFER /Courier-Post

Why go: Hear from prominent artists, authors and performers at the weeklong event. Past participants have included singer Taylor Dayne; Sara Shepard, author of the “Pretty Little Liars’’ book series; cookbook author Joan Nathan; and Jake Ehrenreich, playwright of “A Jew Grows in Brooklyn.’’

Mark your calendar: Oct. 8-9 Main Street, Mullica Hill; (856) 8816800; www.mullicahill.com

Collingswood Book Festival Why go: Books are only part of the story at this event, which brings poetry readings and workshops, meet-the-author events and entertainment to a six-block swath of Haddon Avenue. Young book lovers can hear stories and music, and make crafts in the Kids Zone. Mark your calendar: Oct. 1 Haddon Avenue, Collingswood; (856) 854-6528; (856) 858-0649; www.collingswoodbook festival.com

Cranberry festivals Why go: Each October brings

Collingswood Book Festival a sea of cranberries – one of South Jersey’s top crops – and two festivals celebrate the bounty. The Chatsworth Cranberry Festival offers a tribute to the Pine Barrens and local culture, and showcases local artisans. Bordentown – home to the Ocean Spray juice-processing plant until it moves to Pennsylvania in 2013 – holds its own tribute to

the cranberry with a festival featuring arts and crafts, music, and a vintage car show. Mark your calendar: Bordentown, Oct. 1-2; Chatsworth, Oct. 15-16. Bordentown: Farnsworth Avenue, (609) 298-8066; www.downtownbordentown.com Chatsworth: Routes 534 and 563; www.cranfest.org

For the latest South Jersey news, go to courierpostonline.com

Why go: The Burlington County-sponsored event centers on the Rancocas Creek and the natural environment that surrounds it. Families can take canoes out on the creek, attend gardening workshops, find earth-friendly activities, and listen to music. Mark your calendar: Mid-June Historic Smithville Park, Smithville Road, Eastampton; (609) 265-5858; www.co.burlington.nj.us

East Coast Vulture Festival Why go: How many chances do you have to see a vulture, let alone celebrate the creatures at an event just for them? Wenonah, where vultures return to roost each winter, hosts a children’s fair featuring educational displays, crafts, games and live animals, and topflight evening event with beverages, desserts, a live bird presentation and music. Mark your calendar: Early March. Wenonah Community Center and Elementary School, (856) 468-6536; www.eastcoastvulturefestival.org

Farm fairs Why go: Tractor pulls and pig races aren’t the usual forms of entertainment around here. But county fairs held each summer in Burlington, Camden and Gloucester counties give families a chance to experience oldfashioned family fun. The events are held in conjunction with local 4-H clubs, and feature displays of antique See Page 32

10 S.J. hall of famers

By TAMMY PAOLINO Courier-Post Staff

Harriet Tubman

Harriet Tubman was a leading AfricanAmerican abolitionist who helped establish the Underground Railroad, a network of safe houses and activists that helped slaves reach safety in the north. Tubman, a Maryland native, used Cape May as her base of operations. From there, she would lead trips into Maryland, bringing enslaved people back to New Jersey. Tubman is credited with being the first American woman to lead a military operation, a raid that freed more than 700 slaves. She is a member of the New Jersey Hall of Fame.

Alice Paul Born a Quaker in Mount Laurel, Alice Stokes Paul dedicated her life to advancing the cause of women and securing equal rights for them. A great American leader and suffragette, she helped women secure the right to vote in 1920, and went on to fight for an Equal Rights Amendment as well as civil rights. Paul pushed for the passage of the ERA for the rest of her life, much of it spent in Moorestown. The Alice Paul Institute at Paulsdale continues her legacy. She is a member of the New Jersey Hall of Fame.

Library of Congress

Clara Barton (Left) A Massachusetts native, Barton was born in 1821 and moved to New Jersey when she was in her 20s. For nine years, she worked as a teacher in Bordentown, where she created the state’s first free public school. Barton is best known

as “The Angel of the Battlefield,’’ for her work as a nurse during the Civil War, and as founder of the American Red Cross. Barton was also an activist who fought for women’s rights. She is a member of the New Jersey Hall of Fame.

Carl Lewis (Left) One of the top track-andfield athletes of all time, this Willingboro native was an Olympic star. Carl Lewis won 10 Olympic medals, including nine golds. Lewis has been named World Athlete of the Decade, Olympic Athlete of the Century and was elected into the Track and Field Hall of Fame. Lewis, whose attempt to run for the state senate earlier this year was cut short by residency issues, is a goodwill ambassador for the United Nations, and is a member of the New Jersey Hall of Fame.

Franco Harris A member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame and the New Jersey Hall of Fame, Harris played most of his NFL career with the Pittsburgh Steelers, and the last year with the Seattle Seahawks. He was born at Fort Dix. His father, who was African-American, served in World War II. His mother was from Italy. Harris is a graduate of Rancocas Valley Regional High School and attended Penn State University.

Walt Whitman Considered one of the most famous poets of all time and perhaps the most influential poet in American history, Walt Whitman is synonymous with the city of Camden, where he made his home in his later years. His home is preserved in the city for visitors to explore. Born on Long Island, Whitman grew up in Brooklyn. His most famous work, “Leaves of Grass’’ did not gain a wide audience during his lifetime, although it is now considered an American masterpiece. Whitman also worked as an ambulance driver, helping injured soldiers during the Civil War. He is a member of the New Jersey Hall of Fame. Whitman spent the last two decades of his life in Camden, and is buried in Harleigh Cemetery.

Steven Spielberg Considered one of the top American film directors of all time, Spielberg has produced some of the most memorable and celebrated movies – including “Jaws,’’ “Schindler’s List,’’ “E.T. the Extra Terrestrial,’’ “Saving Private Ryan’’ and many more. Born in Connecticut, Spielberg spent his early years with his Orthodox Jewish parents in Haddon Heights, later moving to California when his parents divorced. In a five-decade career, he has made his mark as a screenwriter, producer, studio executive, and video game designer and is a founder of Dreamworks. He has won two Best Director Oscars and his films have won numerous Academy Awards. Spielberg also earned an American Film Institute Lifetime Achievement Award.

Patti Smith Born in Chicago, this Rock and Roll Hall of Famer spent her childhood in Deptford, where her mom was a waitress and her dad worked for Honeywell. Smith would go on to become one of the most influential artists of punk and rock music. In addition to being a singersongwriter, Smith is also a poet, author and visual artist, and is credited with launching the New York City punk rock movement. Her best-known song, “Because the Night,’’ was co-written by Bruce Springsteen. Her memoir “Just Kids’’ won the National Book Award last year.

Michael Landon Best known to the world as “Pa’’ from the 1970s TV hit “Little House on the Prairie,’’ Landon was an actor, writer, director and producer. He also played well-loved characters on “Bonanza’’ and “Highway to Heaven.’’ Landon was born in Queens, N.Y., as Eugene Maurice Orowtiz, and later said he chose his acting name out of the phone book. His father was an actor and theater manager, and his mother was a dancer and comedian. The family moved to Collingswood when Landon was 4, and it was there that he would attend Collingswood High School, become a champion javelin thrower, and celebrate his bar mitzvah. His life was cut short by pancreatic cancer. Landon has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and closer to home, a portion of Knight Park in Collingswood bears his name.

Bruce Willis (Right) A popular and celebrated movie star, Bruce Willis is best known for his work in action movies, as well as starring in TV’s “Moonlighting’’ with Cybill Shepherd in the 1980s. His best-loved films include “Die Hard,’’ “Sixth Sense’’ and “Pulp Fiction.’’ Born in West Germany, where his father was stationed in the Army, Willis grew up in Penns Grove and attended Penns Grove High School. He later worked as a security guard at Salem Nuclear Power Plant before his acting career took off. He is a member of the New Jersey Hall of Fame.

Memorable moments for S.J. sports fans By KEVIN CALLAHAN Courier-Post Staff

Phillies World Championship 2008

The City of Philadelphia and the South Jersey faithful erupted with joy when winning the city’s first major professional sports championship since the Sixers won the NBA title in 1983. The title was also the Phillies’ first since winning the 1980 World Series.

Flyers winning Stanley Cup 1974 (Top right) Many of the Flyers lived in South Jersey when they won their first Stanley Cup in 1974, including captain Bob Clarke, with a stunning upset of the Bruins. The Flyers repeated in 1975 and many former players still call South Jersey home.

Eagles trip to the Super Bowl 2005 The Patriots crushed the dreams of Eagles’ fans in Jacksonville when a Donovan McNabb late drive failed. The trip to the Super Bowl was the Eagles’ first since Dick Vermeil led the Birds to the Big Game in 1981.

Roy Halladay tossing no-hitter 2010 NL Division Series Earlier in the season, the Doc (right) tossed a perfect game against Florida, but he became just the second pitcher in baseball history, joining Don Larsen, to JOSE F. MORENO/Courier-Post

Flyers win the Stanley Cup in 1974 throw a no-hitter in the postseason when he blanked the Reds at Citizens Bank Park.

Sixers winning NBA Championship 1983 Moses Malone predicted a sweep through the playoffs with his famous “fo-fo-fo” and although they lost one game, the Sixers did win their first title since 1967.

Camden High School boys’ basketball No. 1 1986 The team earned the USA Today final No. 1 ranking 25 years ago under coach Clarence Turner. The Panthers finished undefeated as Lou Banks carried Camden to the state championship.

Allen Iverson lighting up Lakers Game 1 of 2001 NBA finals After leading the league in scoring and earning MVP

honors for the season, Iverson torched Los Angeles for 48 points in Los Angeles in the opening game of the finals. The Lakers won the next four, but Iverson’s performance was unforgettable.

Dajuan Wagner scoring 100 points 2001 On his way to setting a state career scoring record, the 6-foot-2 Camden guard pumped in 100 points against Camden County Tech during his senior season in 2001. The son of Milt Wagner made a name for himself as word of his feat traveled across the country.

Adam Taliaferro suffering broken neck 2000 The former Eastern High School star broke his neck in 2000 making a tackle for Penn State in a game against Ohio State his freshman year. Taliaferro was temporarily paralyzed, but now walks and helps other neck-injury patients through the Taliaferro Foundation.

Andrew Bailey winning AL Rookie of Year 2009 The Paul VI High School graduate and resident of Haddon Heights burst onto the Major League scene by winning the top rookie award in 2009. As an Oakland A’s reliever, he was an All-Star his first two seasons and has emerged as one of baseball’s top closers.

Phillies

Associated Press

Game-day stats: Citizens Bank Park, 1 Citizens Bank Way, Philadelphia, (215) 463-1000; www.phillies.com.

Eagles Andy Reid is beginning his 13th season as head coach and has the most wins and highest winning percentage in club history, but hasn’t won the Super Bowl. Worse, he has lost two straight wildcard playoff games. Owner Jeff Lurie has given Reid the talent to win the big game this year. In addition to Pro Bowl cornerbacks Nnamdi Asomugha and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, the Eagles signed free-agent defensive end Jason Babin, defensive tackle Cullen Jenkins and quarterback Vince Young. With Michael Vick at quarterback last season, the Eagles set a franchise record for scoring points. Running back LeSean McCoy and wide receiver/return man DeSean Jackson are capable of providing plenty of thrills. Game-day stats: Lincoln Financial Field, 11th Street and Pattison Avenue, Philadelphia, (215) 4635500; www.philadelphiaeagles.com.

Flyers Even the most faithful of

Associated Press

With the opportunity to pitch an ace in virtually every game, the Phillies are the odds-on favorite to win their division for the fifth straight year. Led by Roy Halladay, the reigning Cy Young Award winner, the Phillies' staff also includes Cole Hamels and Cliff Lee, who are among the league leaders in wins, and newcomer Vance Worley, who was the best pitcher on the staff in July. Rounding out the group is Roy Oswalt, historically a strong secondhalf performer. New addition Hunter Pence has shored up the Phils' offense.

Ilya Bryzgalov

Hunter Pence of the Phillies Flyers fans are likely to need a scorecard to tell the players, at least in the early part of the season. Over a period of nine days in late June and early July, the Flyers revamped their lineup, highlighted by the addition of goalie Ilya Bryzgalov, whom the team acquired from Phoenix. Gone are longtime fan favorites Mike Richards and Jeff Carter. Joining Bryzgalov among the newcomers are forwards Wayne Simmonds, Brayden Schenn and Jakub Voracek. Plus, on the first day of free agency, the Flyers added forwards Jaromir Jagr and Maxime Talbot, and defenseman Andreas Lilja to the roster. It will be interesting to see how a fan base that jeered, booed and tormented Jagr for years will do a turnaround and cheer him. Game-day stats: Wells Fargo Center, 3601 S. Broad St., Philadelphia, (215) 218-PUCK,

www.philadelphiaflyers.com.

Sixers The team is coming off a somewhat successful season after going 41-41 and earning a playoff berth under firstyear coach Doug Collins. However, it's a team that still has many holes. The Sixers added two draft picks, Nikola Vuvevic, a firstrounder from USC, and Lavoy Allen, a second-round pick from Temple. Former high draft picks Evan Turner and Jrue Holiday give the team a nice, young backcourt, but Andre Iguodala remains someone who may be best suited on a different team. Game-day stats: Wells Fargo Center, 3601 S. Broad St., Philadelphia, (215) 339-7676; www.sixers.com

Wings Those who enjoy events that are part athletic competition and part rock concert should

get a thrill out of watching the Wings play indoor lacrosse. It's a rough sport with lots of bodies hitting the wall and the floor, often set to the melodies of AC-DC, Metallica, Medgadeath and other ear-piercing rock. The Wings are a charter team in their league and have won six championships in 25 seasons. However, they've missed the playoffs the past few years, an have a new slogan: 25 Seasons, 6 Championships, A New Beginning. Game-day stats: Wells Fargo Center, 3601 S.

bars

By TARA NURIN For the Courier-Post

Raise the bar

Live music Shady Katie’s Pub and Patio

Read Tara Nurin's Scene at Night column every Friday in South Jersey Scene to find out what's happening at area bars. CHRIS LaCHALL/Courier-Post

This is a neighborhood bar that attracts patrons from outside the neighborhood. They come for the drink specials, the young, energetic crowd and the acoustic and party bands that jam three nights a week. 814 S. White Horse Pike, Somerdale; (856) 346-3001; www.shadykaties.com

Ott’s on the Green Though several Ott’s locations boast a solid roster of live performances, Ott’s on the Green most consistently fills its schedule with music. The beloved Juliano Brothers play every Thursday and live cover bands — most often of the classic-rock persuasion — or DJs provide the entertainment every Friday and Saturday. 340 Greentree Road, Washington Township; (856) 589-1776; www.ottsrestaurants.com

Dublin Square Veteran Irish musician Tom Brett leads three hours of live session music every Sunday in a large pub setting stocked with decorative imports from the Emerald Isle. At least once a week, crowds peer over the balcony and line the hallways to dance to whatever rousing U.K. or American band is playing onstage. 482 Evesham Road, Cherry Hill; (856) 520-8312; www.dublinsquarepubs.com

Gypsy Bar In a region that prides itself on a robust live-music lineup, this is the shore’s definitive rock 'n' roll bar. With a long tequila list, late-night weekend hours, black-haired bartenders who wear tight, shredded jeans and celebs who drop

Dublin Square in Cherry Hill in from other parts of the casino, the (loud) featured rock acts are only part of the entertainment. Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa, 1 Borgata Way, Atlantic City; (609) 317-1000; www.borgatanightlife.com

Outdoors The Chelsea One of the swankiest modern additions to Atlantic City’s nightlife scene is The Chelsea, a resort hotel where most of the action happens on The Fifth Floor. The summertime heart of the action is The Cabana Club, an outdoor deck and pool with afternoon and nighttime DJs, performances and specialty cocktails designed to add ambience. 111 S. Chelsea Ave., Atlantic City; (800) 548-3030; www.thechelsea-ac.com

Top Dog A few years ago, Top Dog renovated its expansive outdoor area to include three bars, a stage, table seating, cabanas and even a pond and a wooden bridge. Radio DJs often broadcast from the stage while professionals soak in some rays over drinks after work, and nighttime crowds

come out for fresh air. 2310 W. Marlton Pike, Cherry Hill; (856) 486-1001; www.topdogcherryhill.com.

Adelphia “Elaborate” doesn’t begin to describe the multi-tiered and columned front entryway to the bar, restaurant and banquet facility. A small bar serves drinks to those who go outside for some quiet conversation away from the musical din inside. 1750 Clements Bridge Road, Deptford; (856) 845-8200; www. adelphiarestaurant.com

Dancing MIXX/mur.mur The Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa keeps a revolving door of celebs and DJs who come to host or spin at its two nightclubs. Both are open late and cater to the young and beautiful. 1 Borgata Way, Atlantic City; (609) 317-1000; www.borgatanightlife. com

Dusk Despite the death of founder DJ AM, the club associated with Caesars Atlantic City has remained one of A.C.’s most hip and vibrant nightspots.

See courierpostonline. com/shoutouts for photos from the area's hottest nightspots.

Internationally acclaimed DJs bring in a trendy clientele. 2100 Pacific Ave., Atlantic City; (609) 345-DUSK; www.duskac.com

Landmark Americana Catering to the Rowan University crowd, this may be the only true college bar and dance club in South Jersey. During the school year, part of the huge building fills with a pop beat and hundreds of dancers, while the other side functions more as a sports bar. 1 Mullica Hill Road, Glassboro; (856) 863-6600; www. landmarkamericana.com

Sports P.J. Whelihan’s Pub and Restaurant It’s hard to find a seat anywhere when the Eagles, Sixers, Phillies or Flyers are playing, especially during the playoffs. Families share space with upwardly mobile groups of 30-somethings to cheer on their teams and chow on P.J.’s famous wings. 700 Haddon Ave., Haddon Township, (856) 427-7888; 1854 E. Marlton Pike, Cherry Hill; (856) 424-8844; 396 S. Lenola Road, Maple Shade, (856) 234-2345; 61 Stokes Road, Medford Lakes, (609) 714-7900; 425 Hurffville–Cross Keys Road, Washington Township; (856) 582-7774; www.pjspub.com

For the latest South Jersey news, go to courierpostonline.com

Phily Sport Bar The neon that adorns this diner and sports bar lights up the Runnemede sky and makes this a can’t-miss place to watch sports. Forty plasma TVs ensure you’ll see all the action. All televised Eagles, Phillies and Flyers games are shown here and matched with daily drink specials. 31 S. Black Horse Pike, Runnemede; (856) 939-4322; www.philysportsbar.com

Hollywood Café and Sports Bar Hollywood memorabilia covers almost every spare inch of wall space (not to mention the 1960s-era convertible Corvette that greets patrons and gives sports fans something to talk about during commercials. See boxing matches and UFC bouts along with the usual major-league suspects. Route 45 & Elm Ave., Woodbury Heights; (856) 251-0011; www.thehollywoodcafeand sportsbar.com

Cocktails Cork More than a dozen martinis and nearly as many signature drinks appear on the menu at this bistro that also concentrates on Belgian beers. The assortment of modern cocktails – from the Asian Pear martini to the pineapple caipirinha, enhances Haddon Township's sophistication. 90 Haddon Ave., Haddon Township; (856) 833-9800; www.corknj.com

Congress Hall The hub of the stately hotel is The Brown Room, which is a trendy nightlife spot. Draped along the marble-and-ebony rail, the well-heeled set sips on Congressional White Cosmos, cucumber-mint gin and tonics, and natural vanilla mojitos. 251 Beach Ave., Cape May; (609) 884-8421; www.congresshall.com

House of Blues

Susquehanna Bank Center

Singing the blues is common these days, especially at this famed bar chain. Though built on the blues, this Atlantic City venue serves up a mix of music from bands such as Sublime with Rome, Arctic Monkeys and Brand New.

Stars shine at this outdoor amphitheater on the Camden Waterfront, none bigger than the sun setting into the Philadelphia skyline. Crowds of 25,000 will spill in the lawn section this season and rock to A-list acts like Toby Keith, Incubus and Blink 182.

801 Boardwalk, Atlantic City. (609) 343-4000. www.houseofblues.com/venues/ clubvenues/atlanticcity

Long Beach Island Barnegat Light, Beach Haven, Harvey Cedars, Long Beach Township, Ship Bottom and Surf City are popular destinations on the 18-mile stretch that is Long Beach Island. Each beach community offers its own vibe, but families and party seekers both flock to the island. A big draw is Barnegat Light’s Old Barney, a 165-foot-tall lighthouse. Fishing, crabbing, amusements, sightseeing, dining and shopping are just a few ways to spend a day.

Brigantine This friendly town just north of Atlantic City is a prime spot for families. After playing in the surf and sand, visitors can check out the historic museum to learn of Brigantine’s past, which includes shipwrecks and pirates. The Marine Mammal Stranding Center lets visitors

get up close and personal with sea creatures being rehabilitated for release back into the wild.

Beach badges are sold by the week or season and are interchangeable with Margate.

www.brigantinebeachnj.com

For easy access to nightlife, the boardwalk connects with Atlantic City.

Atlantic City Gaming is big in Atlantic City, whether it’s inside the casinos or on the boardwalk. Steel Pier, arcades, souvenir stands and Ripley’s Believe It or Not Museum are fun for the entire family. Trendy nightclubs, beach bars and swanky hotel rooms lure the 21-plus crowd. The Pier Shops at Caesars and The Walk outlets cater to the shoppers. Did we mention the beach here is free?

www.ventnorcity.org

Margate This historic town is best known as the home to Lucy the Elephant, the 65-foot wooden pachyderm. She’s a national historic landmark and open for tours most of the year. A number of fine dining establishments make Margate a great dining destination. Beachgoers can use Margate beach tags in Ventnor as well.

www.atlanticcitynj.com

Ventnor Ventnor is a laid-back town and considered the northernmost part of “Downbeach,” which includes Margate and Longport. Cast a line off the fishing pier or take a trip to the cultural arts center.

One of Atlantic City’s oldest and smallest casinos is one of its most struggling – a problem no doubt compounded by its current identity crisis. In June, the former Atlantic City Hilton changed its name to ACH because the Hilton Hotels chain ended its licensing agreement with the property. ACH, which sits on the boardwalk as the southernmost casino in the city, has highlighted an eclectic mix of entertainment, from Bill Engvall to Whitesnake. Among the casino’s unique features is a gorgeous second-floor Asian gaming room.

Men at work: Large road construction projects •

I-295 from Exit 24 (Route 45 in Gloucester County) to Exit 32 (Haddonfield-Berlin Road in Camden County). Road work started in June 2009 and is scheduled through July 2012 on this 8-mile stretch of interstate. To ease rush-hour congestion, three lanes of traffic in each direction are open from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. (until 9 p.m. north of Route 42).

I-295 between Exit 45 (Rancocas-Mount Holly Road) and Exit 57 (Route 130) in Burlington County. Pavement repair should be finished by November. Ramps might be closed periodically until completion. When a ramp is closed, detour information will be available at www.state.nj.us/ transportation

Route 70/73 Marlton Circle. The elimination of the Marlton Circle should improve traffic flow and reduce accidents at the intersection. The project is set for completion in November. There are no detours at this time.

Kresson Road and Route 561 at the Cherry HillHaddonfield border. This project, which started earlier this summer, includes installation of a traffic signal, repaving of intersection approaches and the construction of new turning lanes. Both roads are open, but expect delays. Completion is expected in January.

Atlantic City Expressway westbound widening. A third westbound lane will be added on the expressway – the main route from South Jersey to Atlantic City and shore points – from the Garden State Parkway to Route 73. The project will cover 24.1 miles. The first phase began in September 2009. The schedule for phases 2, 3 and 4 has not been determined.

Turnpike widening. Three lanes will be added on the turnpike from Interchange 6 through 8A. Construction began in 2009 and is scheduled to be completed in 2014.

With governmental, nonprofit and private sector partners, Cooper aims to transform the area with local parks, pedestrian-friendly streets and rehabilitated housing. In 2012, Cooper Medical School of Rowan University will welcome its first students. This four-year allopathic medical school marks another step in Cooper’s expanding role as a leader in medical education and research. Cooper has a Voorhees campus that includes a center for surgery and women’s health facility, plus the Digestive Health Institute and the Cooper CyberKnife Center in Mount Laurel. The health system also includes more than 50 patient offices throughout South Jersey. Specialties: Cardiology, cancer, critical care, trauma, orthopedics and neurosciences.

Deborah Heart and Lung Center Deborah is the region’s only medical center focused on heart, lung and vascular care, so an overriding goal is to be on the cutting edge in those areas.

Deborah has partnered with Lourdes Health System in a joint effort to offer Burlington County community’s urgent, walkin care and ambulance services at the Browns Mills location. This fall, Deborah plans to open the building dedicated to its new Joslin Diabetes Center. That Harvard University-based program will address a condition that often goes hand-in-hand with heart disease. Deborah also expects to introduce use of a new surgical treatment for asthma. Within the next year, Deborah’s leadership plans to open a new wound treatment center as well as a hybrid operating room that would allow seamless transition between the catheterization lab and OR.

Burlington County College With two-year degrees, transfer opportunities and career development programs, BCC is geared toward students who want a fast workforce entry or advancement, or those looking for a high-quality start to a four-year degree. Students at the college’s multiple sites follow academic paths in biology, business, commercial art, culinary techniques, health professions and other disciplines. Efforts to integrate high-tech learning have resulted in a partnership with Drexel University, allowing students to earn four-year degrees by taking classes at the BCC campus. It is one of five such partnerships BCC has. In July, BCC opened a $9 million Culinary Arts, Tourism and Hospitality Center in Mount Holly, which will serve as a learning site for students and a rentable banquet hall for the community. BCC offers certain collegelevel courses to every public high school in Burlington County, giving students opportunities to double up on their school’s graduation requirements and college credits. A new endeavor at BCC is its Center for Sustainability and Alternative Energy, which boasts “green” associate’s degrees in energy management, alternative energy technologies and sustainable energy studies. The college plans to add an associate’s degree in environmental sustainability as well as professional certificate programs. BCC also offers non-credit courses that allow area residents to polish skills or explore hobbies without committing to a degree

Location: Campuses in Pemberton (601 Pemberton Browns Mills Road, 609-894-9311 or 856-222-9311) and Mount Laurel (500 College Circle, 856222-9311). Off-campus centers in Willingboro, Mount Holly, Bordentown and Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst. BCC also offers courses in Burlington City. www.bcc.edu

Camden County College This is one of the largest community colleges in the state, with more than 100 degree and certificate programs. CCC, the nation’s first community college listing an associate’s degree in video game design, offers academic programs in nursing, sports management, personal training, dental hygiene, dental assisting, veterinary technology, biotechnology, business and many others. Starting this summer, Camden County College agreed to oversee the Camden County Regional Emergency Training Center, the Technical Institute of Camden County and the Camden County Police Academy. That move placed all county-funded, postsecondary education under the college’s supervision in a bid to be more cost-effective. Construction has begun on CCC’s $30 million science building at its Blackwood campus, where the college will be able to expand its academic offerings with such amenities as labs for medical technology and veterinary programs. Its expanded dental hygiene clinic will allow not only more students, but more low-cost exams for community members. That building’s completion in 2012 will spark the conversion of Taft Hall — home to most science programs and courses — into a new student services building, targeted

Rutgers University-Camden The 40-acre Camden spread cites as claims to fame the only law school in South Jersey and the nation’s first doctorate program in childhood studies. This major public research university offers a close-to-home experience with academic programs in humanities, physical and social sciences, health care, business and other professions.

JOHN ZIOMEK/Courier-Post

Rutgers-Camden is building a graduate housing complex to expand its existing on-campus facilities. Its new School of Nursing will help meet needs for that profession. The university is introducing satellite programs at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst, Camden County College and Cumberland County College to provide access to higher education. This fall, Rutgers-Camden will open the Hill Family Center for College Access to support students on the path to college success. Rutgers also has campuses in New Brunswick and Newark.

UMDNJ

For people who want to

learn without signing on to a degree program, Rutgers offers online certificate programs through its Institute for Management and Executive Development, including a special program for unemployed New Jersey residents. Locations: Rutgers-Camden is at 303 Cooper St., (856) 222-1766. www.camden.rutgers.edu

University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey UMDNJ has eight schools on five campuses including the collection of buildings in Stratford. Students at UMNJ pursue majors in medicine, dentistry, public health, nursing and allied health careers. Its Stratford campus includes the Schools of Nursing, Public Health, Osteopathic Medicine, and Health-Related Professions, as well as the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences. It is a research institution and scientists at the School of Osteopathic Medicine recently helped develop a test that can detect Alzheimer's Disease. A record number of applicants – nearly 4,000 –

applied to UMDNJ’s School of Osteopathic Medicine in Stratford. Only 150 were admitted, about 85 percent of whom were from New Jersey. That school recently expanded its graduate medical education, providing the specialized training that interns and residents need after finishing four years of medical school. UMDNJ-Stratford’s School of Health Related Professions offers joint programs with six county colleges and with Rutgers University-Camden. It provides online programs that can lead to bachelor, master or doctoral degrees. Locations: UMDNJ is based in Newark with five regional campuses including the one in Stratford.

Community spotlight Once solely a rural enclave and today more suburban, Evesham is at the crossroads of two busy state highways, Routes 70 and 73. That intersection assumed a new look this summer when the state completely eliminated remnants of the old traffic circle and elevated traffic on Route 73 with an overpass. Marlton, the name of the original downtown village along Main Street, is often used to refer to the township. Evesham was incorporated in 1692, six days after Thomas Eves, a Quaker from Evesham, England, bought land north of Greentree Road. It is a township originally so large its

incorporated territory once included parts of Medford, Mount Laurel, Lumberton, Hainesport, Shamong and Washington Township.

MEDFORD Once a center of commerce with lumber and grist mills, Medford has tried to retain its rural identify at the edge of the Pinelands. The township was named Medford by a developer after the name of a Massachusetts town. At Christmas the quaint downtown of antique shops, restaurants and service businesses holds a Dickens festival. The township was home to

Dr. James Still, a self-taught physician who became known in the 1800s as the Black Doctor of the Pines and whose office survives. Kirby’s Mill is a now a museum on the National Register of Historic Places.

MOUNT LAUREL Mount Laurel is suburbia at the crossroads of four major highways -- the New Jersey Turnpike, Interstate 295 and state highways Route 73 and 38. It is a bedroom community with some light industrial parks on what was once mainly farmland. Some open space remains, but there is no See Page 98

MOORESTOWN An upscale community with stately homesteads and the highest residential property values in Burlington County, Moorestown has Quaker roots from the Colonial period that are still evident today. CHRIS LaCHALL/Courier-Post

It is home to Moorestown Mall and to a thriving business district downtown that recently has attracted more eateries, but do not look for liquor. The town is “dry” though a move is under way to place retail liquor questions on the November ballot. The Moorestown Friends School and its Friends Meeting House remain a part of its English Quaker tradition.

same site on Second Street. The township's oldest farm, the BrowningHess, which runs a farm stand, was preserved this summer. The popular Burlington County Farmers Market operates from spring to fall on Centerton Road under the auspices of Burlington County government.

MAPLE SHADE Maple Shade straddles the Burlington County and Camden County border, and has a strong sense of community with its motto “Nice Town, Friendly People.” The intersection of Main Street and Route 73 recently was upgraded with a new overpass above the state highway after months of closure and detours between Maple Shade and Moorestown. The Little Red School House on Main Street and the railroad station off Forklanding Road are historic sites. Once agricultural, the township was part of Chester Township (Moorestown) until 1922. In 1945 it was named Maple Shade.

Community spotlight The town is named after famed naturalist John James Audubon, who resided in Camden and explored the surrounding area from 1829 to 1832. The great diversity in birds that inhabited or migrated through the town are well documented in Audubon’s “Birds of America.” Audubon has the distinction of being the “Most Patriotic Small Town in America” as it is the hometown of three Medal of Honor recipients: Samuel M. Sampler, World War I; Nelson V. Brittin, World War II and Korean War; and Edward C. Benfold, Korean War. Throughout the borough’s history, the high school sports

programs have had great success statewide. Starting with the 1960 football team that won the Colonial Conference and State Group 3 Championship to the baseball team that has won six State Championships and 18 South Jersey Championships, Audubon has created a lasting athletic legacy. Borough native Joe Flacco is quarterback for the NFL’s Baltimore Ravens.

BARRINGTON Divided by Interstate 295, the New Jersey Turnpike, the White Horse Pike and Clements Bridge Road, the borough of Barrington borders on more municipalities than any other

community in Camden County. Barrington mixes a smalltown setting with easy access to major roads, but continues to try to find its place as more than a crossroads for the county. Children attend Avon Elementary and Woodland Middle School before moving onto Haddon Heights High School. The borough of Barrington has 13 walking trails, established in 2010 by a local Eagle Scout.

A major renovation to the mall was finished in 2009, completely changing its exterior and interior and bringing many high-end stores and restaurants. The town’s newest shopping center and development – the Market Place at Garden State Park – continues to grow, adding homes, office space and retailers. The township’s schools are regarded as among the best in the state. The largest township in Camden County, the community is home to corporations such as Subaru of America, TD Bank, Lockheed Martin, Melitta Coffee and Pinnacle Foods.

beginning of South Jersey industry. The mills and land were purchased by Samuel Clement in the early 1800s. Clementon Park & Splash World, constructed in 1907, remains the borough’s most significant commercial enterprise. In the early decades of the 20th century,

On Saturdays from May to November, the town hosts a farmers market under the PATCO Hi-Speedline, featuring only local produce, baked goods and crafts. In October the town holds a book festival. The American Planning Association selected Haddon Avenue as one of its 10 Great Streets for 2009 “for the way it melds the past with the present.” Collingswood is the first New Jersey community to be cited under the association’s Great Places in America program.

Haddon Township is also home to the Ritz Theatre and the Champion School, Camden County’s first one-room schoolhouse. The township has an active retiree community with several groups including the Senior Citizens Association of Haddon Township.

Much of what is now Collingswood was a farm owned by members of the Collings family during the 18th and 19th centuries. The town has several historic homes, including the StokesLees mansion, located in the 600 block of Lees Avenue, which dates to the 18th century, making it one of the oldest houses in the county.

GLOUCESTER TOWNSHIP One of the largest municipalities in the state, Gloucester Township is also one of New Jersey’s oldest towns, incorporated in 1695. The present Township of Gloucester was one of the original townships that comprised Old Gloucester County, and in 1844 it became part of the newly formed County of Camden. Rich in its history and historic sites, the township is home to The Gabreil Daveis Tavern House, located at 4th Avenue in Glendora. The pre-American Revolutionary War tavern was built in 1756, was recently restored and now serves as the township’s historical centerpiece. Betsy Ross eloped across the Delaware River to Gloucester and was married at the tavern in 1773. The ChewPowell House, built in 1688, can be found on Good

HADDONFIELD Noted for its historic homes, quaint shops and fine restaurants, Haddonfield is known as a gem in South Jersey suburbia. The borough was founded by Elizabeth Haddon, who sailed from England to the New World in 1701. In 1875, Haddonfield became the first community to cede from Haddon Township and become a self-governing borough. Although the sale of alcohol has been forbidden since 1873, it was at Haddonfield’s Indian King Tavern, built in 1750, where the New Jersey General Assembly met and declared New Jersey a free

and independent state in the winter of 1777. As a legal center for South Jersey, the town houses the offices of more than 390 attorneys. New Jersey Monthly magazine rated Haddonfield as the 33rd best place to live in New Jersey in its 2010 rankings.

HADDON HEIGHTS Haddon Heights is a turn-ofthe-century railroad town founded in 1904. It was originally settled during the Colonial period and the borough still has four preRevolutionary War homes that are occupied. The town was originally laid out in 1890 as a “new town,” a planned community along the railroad line to Atlantic City. It is the only town in South Jersey with its original passenger and freight station, and freight trains still

travel daily through town. Station Avenue serves as the borough’s “main street,” and is lined with an old-fashioned grocery store, various shops and retail outlets and a nice array of coffee shops, luncheonettes and fine dining restaurants.

HADDON TOWNSHIP The Township of Haddon, incorporated in 1865 when it was split off from Newton Township, would divide again over a period of many years to become part of nine other municipalities. These splits would leave Haddon Township with its somewhat irregular, non-contiguous borders that today include the communities of West Collingswood Heights, West Collingswood Extension and Westmont. A unique mix of architectural styles and businesses gives

At a minuscule 0.2 square miles, Hi-Nella is the smallest borough in Camden County. While it might be small in size, its residents have an enormous amount of pride. The name Hi-Nella is a Native American term that means “high ground,” and the borough’s heritage is reflected in the names of its neighborhood roads, such as Pocahontas, Apache and Minnetonka. Hi-Nella was created by Charles Darling, a land developer who was hired in 1924 to plan the community. The Hi-Nella Shopping Center on Warwick Road offers a central location for retail and other businesses. A new gazebo in the Memorial Field Park on Nokomis Road was completed earlier this year.

LAUREL SPRINGS Diminutive Laurel Springs, “Walt Whitman’s Summer Home,” was once a top summer destination for locals.

LAWNSIDE

JOHN ZIOMEK/Courier-Post

In March 1926, New Jersey Gov. A. Harry Moore signed into law State Assembly Bill 561, which incorporated the borough of Lawnside. The action propelled the small borough into the local and national spotlight, making history as the first selfgoverning African-American community north of the Mason-Dixon Line. Over the next six decades, popular jazz clubs in Lawnside drew legendary entertainers such as Duke Ellington, Sarah Vaughan and Ella Fitzgerald. The borough is home to the Peter Mott House, built around 1844, which was the home of a free black farmer and pastor of historic Mt. Pisgah AME Church. The house is one of the Underground Railroad stations that was owned and operated by an African

American. Lawnside Park, on Charleston Avenue, is a popular neighborhood spot for recreation and youth athletic groups.

The borough started as a train stop, and a replica of the original station from the 1890s is a must-see landmark in town. Another historic point of interest is the Magnolia United Methodist Church, the oldest building in the community, whose cornerstone was laid in 1858.

LINDENWOLD Among Lindenwold’s historic landmarks are the St. Lawrence Roman Catholic Church, built in 1897, and the Tomlinson House – the oldest house in the borough – built in 1742. The borough, well known for neighborhoods of apartment complexes and housing developments, offers a variety of ethnic restaurants. Mass transit isn’t a problem for locals, thanks to the PATCO Hi-Speedline, which made its first trip into Philadelphia from Lindenwold in 1969.

Since 1922, one of the borough’s most timehonored traditions has been the Miss Magnolia Pageant.

MERCHANTVILLE

The borough was incorporated in 1929, and was named by Wilmer Bedford, the secretary and attorney for the Penn Guarantee Trust Company. Lindenwold in German means “Linden Woods,” and Bedford planned to have linden trees planted along the streets of the new town, but while he was away on other business, cheaper and more easily obtained trees were planted.

MOUNT EPHRAIM Mount Ephraim, the “Village at the Crossroads,” was named after Ephraim Albertson, who operated The Public House, also called The Old Tavern, at the intersection of the Black Horse Pike and Kings Highway. From 1800 to 1825, stagecoach companies operating among Camden, Philadelphia and the Jersey Shore chose Albertson’s tavern as a station.

SOMERDALE Split by the White Horse Pike, which is home to a number of businesses, the borough of Somerdale is a diverse suburban community in the center of Camden County. Somerdale was incorporated in 1929, one of seven municipalities created from Clementon Township, and one of five boroughs created at the same time.

Today, Mount Ephraim is a close-knit community of modest homes and many small, locally owned businesses.

OAKLYN The borough of Oaklyn, incorporated in 1905, is nestled between sections of neighboring Haddon Township. Once part of what was known as the Newton Colony, which was settled in the late 1600s, the area now known as Oaklyn was dense forest land inhabited by the Lenape Indians. As the colony began to grow two highways were laid out. One, from the Delaware River to Egg Harbor, followed an old Native American trail, which is today the Black Horse Pike. The other was known as the Long-a-coming Trail, which extended from

Mount Ephraim’s Borough Hall, at 121 S. Black Horse Pike, was built in 1903 and originally was used as a school. In 1975 an addition was built onto the hall.

Philadelphia, Pennsauken boasts a culturally diverse community with a wide variety of housing options, the vast Cooper River Park and the famed Pennsauken Country Club golf course and restaurant. It is one of the most densely populated towns in the county. Big businesses in town are among the largest employers in the tri-county area and include Pepsi-Cola & National Brand and J&J Snack Foods. Pennsauken is home to one of the county’s most noted memorials to Sept. 11, 2001. The artist used local residents as models for the bronze

statues that are a part of the memorial, located at the intersection of Route 130 and Merchantville Avenue.

RUNNEMEDE Runnemede is a slice of small-town America. Locals have always considered the borough a unified, blue-collar community. The famous Mister Softee ice cream company was created here in 1956. The borough was incorporated in 1926 from portions of the now-defunct Centre Township. The boroughs of Bellmawr and Mount Ephraim were created at the same time.

VOORHEES In 1844 the County of Camden was created. This included Waterford Township, of which Voorhees was a part. In 1899 three Waterford Township residents petitioned the State Legislature to make the current boundaries of Voorhees a separate township. Since Gov. Foster McGowan Voorhees granted the request, the township was named in his honor. Over the years, six neighborhood communities took root: Ashland, Glendale,

was known for its thriving glass business, which developed as a result of the township’s abundant resources of timer clay and sand. The completion of the Atlantic City Expressway in 1965, with an interchange in Winslow at Williamstown Road, drew developers to the township and thousands of homes were built through the 1970s. Nearly 80 percent of the township sits in the Pinelands National Reserve, which restricts land development, but many agricultural areas remain in Winslow. In addition to the AC Expressway, the township is crisscrossed by several major roads, such as Routes 30, 73 and 143. The township also consists of nearly a dozen communities, including Ancora, Blue Anchor, Cedar Brook, Tansboro and Sicklerville.

Community spotlight Since its incorporation on Feb. 17, 1836, Washington Township has grown from a farming community to become the most populous municipality in Gloucester County. Sections such as Sewell, Grenloch, Hurffville and Whitman Square are home to township residents. Washington Township offers many retail stores in shopping centers. It also is home to professional centers and a campus of Kennedy University Hospital, and boasts

Gloucester County's largest public school system. The township is filled with open space and parks, including a nine-hole municipal golf course. The amphitheater at Washington Lake Park is the site of township-sponsored summer movies and concerts. The picturesque, historic James G. Atkinson Old Stone House Village can be rented for church services, weddings and other celebrations.

DEPTFORD Gloucester County's third most-populated municipality was incorporated in 1695 as one of the county's original townships. Its name comes from a small town in Kentshire, England, but it was settled in 1623 by the Dutch and later claimed by the Swedes and the Finns before coming under British control. The township's trademark hot-air balloon logo marks a key moment in township history. On Jan. 9, 1793,

From a township of wilderness and vast hunting grounds, Deptford has become the county's foremost shopping destination with its only indoor regional shopping center, the Deptford Mall, which opened in 1975. The mall has four major department stores and is surrounded by other retail development as well as restaurants and two movie theaters.
