Some Collection Highlights

Collection Overview

We have personal and family papers, as well as organizational records for groups both large and small (see below). Our Ledger Collection contains a variety of business records, organizational records, genealogies, scrapbooks, financial records, and other materials from the eighteenth, nineteenth, and twentieth centuries (see below). We hold cemetery surveys for the Haddonfield Methodist Cemetery, Haddonfield Baptist Cemetery, and Colestown Cemetery in Cherry Hill, as well as partial records for the Mt. Peace Cemetery in Lawnside. We have a large number of original recorded and unrecorded deeds, and various maps and atlases.

We also maintain vertical files with research information about Haddonfield buildings and properties, people, and other assorted subjects.

We have a collection of Borough directories from roughly 1884-1961, and Haddonfield Memorial High School yearbooks from roughly 1916-1992.

We have an extensive collection of photographs and postcards depicting Haddonfield and local individuals, as well as photographs collected by the editor of the Haddon Town Crier Herald newspaper.

We have recordings and transcriptions for a series of oral history interviews conducted by Tillie Clement and others and previously kept at the Haddonfield Public Library.
