History

Camden County's was formed from portions of Gloucester County in 1844. It was named for Charles Pratt, the Earl of Camden. The first settlement in Camden County was West Collingswood, and a ferry that operated in the 1600's provided the first transportation between colonies on the Delaware River. Camden County became an industrial and commercial leader manufacturing hundreds of products, and in 1869 Joseph Campbell and Abram Anderson founded a preserving company that eventually became known as The Campbell Soup Company.
