Villiers Place

Quiet street - AI Stock Photo

Villiers Place extended eastward from 630 North Front Street until it reached a dead end in North Camden. It was first documented in Camden City Directories in 1931 and remained listed in the final Directory published in 1947. Interestingly, no specific addresses were ever recorded for this street.

According to the 1906 Sanborn map, there was a three-story attached wood frame building consisting of six businesses located at 626, 628, 630, 632, 634, and 636 North Front Street. It is possible that these addresses were demolished, leading to the creation of Villiers Place as a replacement.

The exact origin of the name Villiers Place is subject to speculation. The only known association with Camden is Amy Villiers Whyte, the daughter of George Walton Whyte, who served as the Camden County Surrogate for an extended period of time.
