Lost Haddonfield: Haddon House Hotel and Restaurant

The past comes alive in pictues.

The Haddon House Hotel and restaurant at 300 Kings Highway East was built in 1820 by George Hanold, according to Cliff Brunker of the Historical Society of Haddonfield. In 1863, Charles Hammit Shin purchased the house and added a mansard roof and curved dormers.

The hotel was converted into offices in 1957 and today is occupied by Remington & Vernick.

Der Bingle stayed at the Haddon House while he was playing the ponies? Wonder if he was playing an engagement at the Latin Casino. Great info and photos.

Glad you like them. The Latin Casino was located in Philly on the corner of 13th and Walnut Streets until it was relocated and expanded in 1960.

It would be nice if Remington & Vernick would put back the curved dormers, they gave the house charm. Thanks for the relocation info on The Latin Casino. Here I thought Cherry Hill is where it started and sadly ended. Who knew it had a history. I was the telephone operator at the Rickshaw Hotel. I met so many of the stars who entertained at the Latin Casino. Just to drop a few names, The Jackson's, the Osmonds,and Tom Jones.
