History[edit]

Ladd's Castle (also known as Candor Hall) is a historic building located in the Colonial Manor section that is Gloucester County's oldest brick home. Added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1972, it was constructed around 1688 by William Ladd, a surveyor who is said to have helped William Penn develop a master design for the street grid for Philadelphia.[2]

The Colonial Manor Volunteer Fire Department was established in 1922.[3]
