Allen’s Court


Allen’s Court, also known as Allen Court, ran parallel to North 2nd Street. Access to the court was provided by an alleyway extending eastward from 108 North 2nd Street. While the 1850 Camden City directory did not list Allen’s Court, it appeared in the 1863-1864 Directory, suggesting that the street was established during the intervening years.

Originally, there were six houses lining the west side of Allen’s Court. In the late 1910s or early 1920s, these houses underwent renumbering, transitioning from even numbers to odd numbers to conform to the city’s standardized house numbering system. For instance, 102 Allen became 9; 104 became 11; 106 became 13; 108 became 15; 110 became 17, and 112 became 19.

By the time the 1929 Camden City Directory was compiled, six houses remained standing on Allen’s Court, but only three were occupied. The court persisted until at least 1933 but had disappeared from records by the publication of the 1947 City Directory.
