“Historic Haddonfield” may sound like a cute little exercise in alliteration, but the appellation has been duly earned. This quaint, leafy town was where the New Jersey General Assembly declared New Jersey an independent state during the winter of 1777. Long before Haddonfield itself was founded, these lands were home to the Lenape Indians, who settled along the banks of the Delaware. And skipping back several thousand millennia, Haddonfield also has paleontological relevance: this was where the first full dinosaur skeleton was found in North America.
