Outside the Ordinary

Making History Hip

Haddonfield offers the epitome of hometown America. A delightful borough with plenty of shops, restaurants, enticing events, and opportunities to enjoy the arts, Haddonfield has been rated one of the best places to live year after year by Philadelphia Magazine. With its three squared miles, most homes are within easy walking distance from the town center.

Haddonfield has a population of just fewer than 12,000 people, and the community spirit and enthusiasm are evident at annual events including the Craft Fair, Car Show, Sidewalk Sale, First Night New Year's celebration, and the weekly summer Farmer's Markets.

Walk along downtown Kings Highway and revel in the town's great history with its trademark colonial style homes. Stop by the Indian King Tavern where New Jersey was declared a free and independent state in 1777, or visit the statue commemorating the Hadrosaurus Foulkii dinosaur, the world's first nearly complete dinosaur skeleton found in 1858.

During the holidays, appreciate carolers, Candlelight Shopping, and horse and buggy rides. In the summer, stop by one of the town's numerous ice cream parlors or outdoor cafes for a refreshing treat. Catch a show by our Plays and Players Theatre or the Symphony in C (formerly the Haddonfield Symphony) all year round.

No matter your taste, Haddonfield is a great place for everyone. Safety and community involvement are top priorities, and Haddonfield is nationally recognized for its Blue Ribbon public school system. Come visit Historic Haddonfield for yourself and fall in love with its Quaker charm. It is a truly a wonderful place to live.
