Inscription.  During the Revolutionary War the Hessian Army was encamped on these grounds before and after the battle of Red Bank, fought October 22, 1777, near Fort Mercer on the Delaware River, where it met defeat.

The officers occupied the houses on the west side of the road. The first brick house from Cooper’s Creek was owned by John Middleton and was demolished in 1926 when this high school was erected.

The two buttonwoods in front of this building were slips from the historic buttonwood trees now standing on Kings Highway north of Haddon Ave., planted April 13, 1928.
 
Erected 1938 by Haddenfield Chapter Daughters of the American Revolution.
