Budd Street

Budd Street is situated in Camden’s Centerville neighborhood and made its first appearance in City Directories in 1878. However, the first house with a Budd Street address did not appear until 1891. According to a 1914 map, Budd Street ran east from Ninth Street to the rear fence of Evergreen Cemetery, positioned between Ferry Avenue and Central Avenue. However, the 1906 Camden City Directory indicates Budd Street beginning at Miller Street.

The construction of the Clement T. Branch Village public housing project in 1940 further altered Budd Street, changing its length so that it now runs from 9th Street to Charles Street.
