Haddon Heights History

In the 18th century, King's Run was dammed, and a mill race and fulling mill were constructed by John Thorn Glover. In 1890, Benjamin A. Lippincott built a passenger station for the Atlantic City Railroad Company. Lippincott and Charles Hillman planned the community of Haddon Heights. It was officially incorporated on March 2, 1904.
