I find these historic records so very interesting. So much of south Jersey history seemed, to me, to be plowed under the soon-endless suburbs. I remember a Quaker cemetery and meetinghouse behind the now-former Olga's. I met a very old (90s) black man who lived on a property on Kresson Road and tended the family horses, and his family had always lived in that house. I saw his grave in the Quaker cemetery shortly after I met him. There was such a history before the suburbs.

That's Cropwell Meeting on Old Marlton Pike.

I wonder why Chesilhurst didn't have any notable BBQ. There may have been some, but nothing that stuck or became an institution, landmark.

More recently there was an excellent BBQ truck off of the White Horse Pike in Chesilhurst, called Brother Bear BBQ. They closed last year though, so they only ended up being open for maybe 2-3 years. Such a shame because that was serious quality food that was worthy of graduating from food truck to restaurant level.

Their biggest mistake probably was putting it in Chesilhurst though. Talk about a place feeling depressing and in the middle of nowhere.

I wonder if he's from there? I can't think of any other reason to choose that location.

Ah, yes, that's right. Is it still there? I won't be back in south Jersey.

Yes, it is. Medford, Springfield, and all of the others are still around. Some of the old farmhouses from the 1800s are. There's one in, I think, in the Woodstream development just west of Rt. 73.

I met a guy who moved to Marlton when the first development went in. He remembers cows crossing 70 because the farmer's barn was across the road from his pasture. Peach orchards lined 73.

This is on the Marlton United Methodist Church property. https://www.google.com/maps/@39.8908...7i13312!8i6656

BBQ. My son went to Mission BBQ last week and said that their food was pretty good. They don't have greens. They can keep their green beans. If you don't have coleslaw, potato salad, mac & cheese, beans, cornbread, and greens, you're not a real BBQ place. Oh, and cold tea.

S NJ is no longer a 'Q wasteland. Two locals I've visited a few times and enjoy:
Smoke BBQ - Audubon
Macona BBQ - Collingswood

And a little further out:
Henri's 'Hotts' Barbeque - Hammonton

I moved to South Jersey in 1987 and all the BBQ places were along Evesham Road in Lawnside. None in Magnolia. One building still kind of stands and I can't remember which BBQ place it was, but we did eat there once. They had really good homemade potato salad, I remember. The building is a wreck and they need to demolish.

His wife Ruth just came into the nail salon where my daughter works to get her nails done. She is as sweet as they come. My first taste of their food came from her macaroni and cheese that she insisted I taste. It was so good.

If you are willing to take the drive, Christine's House of Kingfish in Shamong is very good. https://www.facebook.com/Christines-...C-61300031171/

There used to be a place in Lawnside, I think it was called Snow Hill, but I believe its been gone for some time now.
