Audubon History

The Lenni Lenape tribe of Native Americans were the original inhabitants. Among the early settlers who arrived in the late 17th and early 18th century, there were a significant number of Quakers. Camden County was created on March 13, 1844, and towards the end of the 19th century, it had emerged as an industrial and commercial leader. On March 13, 1905, Audubon was formed through an Act of the New Jersey Legislature. It was created from parts of the Haddon Township and was named in honor of John James Audubon, a naturalist.
