This village across the Delaware from Philadelphia emerged in 1713. With Philly now 20 minutes away by high-speed rail, urban sprawl encroaches. Yet Haddonfield remains a distinct community. Youthful families are lured by a great school system; children safely bike around the neighborhood. Built on farmland inherited by Elizabeth Haddon Estaugh, the village clusters around the pre-Revolutionary King’s Highway, today’s Route 41. Its centerpiece was the Indian King Tavern, now a museum. Peaceful streets are lined with 18th- and 19th-century houses in styles from colonial and Greek to Gothic, Mansard, and Queen Anne, many of them in a national historic district.
