Lost Haddonfield: Railroads

The past comes alive in pictures.

"In 1881, the Philadelphia Medford and Marlton Railroad was completed and began offering freight and passenger service," said Cliff Brunker, of the Historical Society of Haddonfield. "Products from farms and orchards were shipped through Haddonfield, and to markets in Philadelphia. Passenger service continued until 1927. All service ended in 1931."

are you adding value with these comments

I think the comments here are adding value by pointing out the solid"blue Collar" Haddonfield people who made Haddonfield what it is today had & have just as much value as those who think Haddonfield is only for the "upper class". I will never understand the reason why just because you belong to Tavistock CC you think you are better than the gardener that mows the greens. My Grandparents Mr&Mrs G.W.A Kappel were members of Tavistock & they made sure to instill in me that no one class is better than another. We must all work to make Haddonfield a town for everyone to enjoy.

Yes, they are. Our town has a long history and we need to know and value all of it. Even more important--what goes up can come down--and we all need friends to catch us.

My dad grew up in Upstate NY and we lived in Haddonfield and Dad got such a laugh about the "rich" of Haddonfield. In Upstate NY where there are Estates and Mansions...he would say rich is when you get to the front gate and have to travel miles to get to the front door.

Your Dad was a wise man, Peggy, as was mine. One of the many pearls of wisdom he imparted on me while growing up is "money can buy you everything but class." Some folks in our town...and in this world....need to learn that lesson!
