In Camden, there are two streets named Twelfth Street, one in the north and one in the south, sharing only their name. North Twelfth Street once extended from Federal Street to the Cooper River, featuring residences, industries like Moro Phillips chemical works and N.B. Greaves varnish factory, a baseball stadium, and at its far end, five frame houses and four boathouses. However, highway construction has largely erased the street. It still shows on maps from Federal to Penn Streets, but without any buildings or addresses. A tiny fragment of former North Twelfth Street between Penn and Linden Streets is now mapped as Penn Street. Meanwhile, South Twelfth Street stretches from Fairview Street to Lakeshore Drive, lined with rowhouses built post-World War II.
