Dating back to 1878, Mt. Ephraim Avenue has a history rooted in the past when it operated as the Mount Ephraim Turnpike, functioning as a toll road.

This new section, aligned parallel to Newton Avenue, extended towards Admiral Wilson Boulevard, running along the western perimeter of the former Sears-Roebuck building.
