One month after Lawnside, New Jersey was incorporated in 1926, the borough became the first independent self-governing African-American community north of the Mason-Dixon line. The land that became Lawnside was purchased by abolitionists for freed and escaped slaves, as well as other African-Americans, in 1840. Located in Camden County, Lawnside borders Barrington, Cherry Hill, Magnolia, Somerdale, and Tavistock.
