Lost Haddonfield: The Buttonwoods

The past comes alive in pictures.

"According to Frank S. Stewart, former president of the Gloucester County Historical Society and the author of several books on Indian trails and folklore of South Jersey, the first thing done by the Quakers when they erected a meetinghouse in Haddonfield, was to plant a tree on each side of the entrance to the lane leading to the meetinghouse," according to Cliff Brunker of the Historical Society of Haddonfield. "These Buttonwood Trees marked the meetinghouse lane."

I remember my Dad, George Semler, taking me to see "Bambie" at the Little Theatre when I was about 5 yrs. old. It was the first outing with just Daddy & me. Thanks for the wonderful memory.
