The Haddonfield Amusement Company was incorporated in New Jersey in 1926. The company was part of a wave of incorporations during the time period to build amusement parks and other recreational facilities. It doesn't appear the company ever got off the ground and may have fallen victim to the Great Depression.

Haddonfield is a borough located in Camden County, New Jersey. It was incorporated by an Act of the New Jersey Legislature on April 6, 1875.

The Haddonfield area was occupied by Lenni Lenape Native Americans. The Lenape disappeared from the local area when settlers arrived. Arrowheads and pottery shards have been found by residents by the banks of the Cooper River, hinting that there was a Native American settlement in Haddonfield at one point in time.

Haddonfield was founded by Elizabeth Haddon (16801762), whose Quaker father, John Haddon, bought a 500 acres tract of land in the English colony of West Jersey to escape religious persecution. Elizabeth set sail alone from Southwark, England to the New World in 1701. Shortly after her arrival, she made a marriage proposal to John Estaugh, a Quaker minister, and they were married in 1702. The town was named for John Haddon, though he never came to the United States.NJ-New Jersey Amusement Parks and Recreation Female Subject
