1809 ? ? 1959

The Old Grove School stood on this site.
It was deeded by William E. Hopkins from land which came down through the family from Elizabeth Haddon and here the Grove School was built.

Mr. Hopkins wanted all the children of the village to have educational opportunity. Up to that time, the Friends was the only school in Haddonfield.

On July 7th, 1855, the Old Grove School became the first Public School in Haddonfield.

It was understood that any religious group could hold service here and three of our churches met and were organized in the Grove School; The Baptist - 1818, the Methodist - 1829, the Episcopal - 1842.
Also Mount Pisgah Methodist ? 1887 - Mt. Olivet Baptist ? 1892
