Welcome To Laurel Springs, New Jersey

The Borough of Laurel Springs is located in Southern New Jersey about 14 miles from the Walt Whitman Bridge that connects Philadelphia to New Jersey. Its main roads were once the only way from Philadelphia to the shore and many people stopped and stayed in Laurel Springs instead of continuing on south. There is a lot of history here and plenty of beauty for all to see. Walt Whitman found a summer home here, writing about historic Crystal Springs in “Leaves of Grass” and “Specimen Days”. The Gray Stone Mansion, built by Samuel S. Cord in 1889 which is currently being restored is located in the quaint, unhurried, town-center of Laurel Springs. It truly is the undiscovered gem of Camden County bringing small-town enjoyment to local residents and surrounding communities.
