Girard Place

Google Maps photo of 570 Girard Place, taken in 2012.

Girard Place was a small, dead-end street that extended east from 916 St. John Street in Camden. First appearing in the Camden City Directories in 1890, Girard Place initially featured eleven homes. The street was later extended to connect with Newton Avenue after the demolition of the frame dwellings at 915 Newton Avenue.

By 1947, the number of homes on Girard Place had dwindled to just five. This decline continued, and by 1980, only one house, 570 Girard Place, remained occupied. Remarkably, 570 Girard Place was still standing and occupied as of 2016, despite the street itself disappearing over time. Today, Girard Place no longer exists as a street, and 570 Girard Place no longer exists, nor does the street sign.
