This mid 19th century marker has somehow beaten the odds and withstood all the progress which occurred over the last 150 years. It is in terrific shape and can easily be seen, and mostly ignored, on the side of Main Street.

There used to be many of these in Camden County, especially in Haddonfield. This would be the last one remaining as the other ones have simply disappeared. This gives distance to Camden and to Gloucester.
