Tour 19
Hightstown–Camden–Pennsville; US 130

Junction with US 1-Hightstown-Camden-Pennsville-(New Castle, Del.); US 130
Junction with US 1 to Pennsville Ferry, 87.9 miles

The Pennsylvania R.R. parallels the route between the junction with US 1 and Deans; the junction with State 33 and Burlington; and Paulsboro and Penns Grove.
Usual accommodations throughout.
Two and four-lane concrete or macadam roadbed in excellent condition; heavy freight traffic at night.

US 130, branching south from US 1 on the southern edge of New Brunswick, crosses the State northeast to southwest, avoids the congestion around Trenton and Philadelphia, and passes through more varied and attractive country than does the heavily traveled US 1. Small communities in the northern section retain much of the flavor of the days when the Dutch and the English made the first settlements here. Farms and woodlands lie all along the highway but, in the flatter countryside between Camden and Pennsville, corn shocks and trees alike are scarcer, and broad creeks and marshes are numerous. Between Bordentown and Pennsville, US 130 parallels the course of the Delaware River; tall chimneys of factories along the riverbanks are seen at intervals.

US 130 branches south from US 1 (see Tour 1), 0 mile, on the southeastern edge of New Brunswick. Several hundred feet R. stands the red and white steel tower of an airway beacon.
