Hadrosaurus – South Jersey’s Dinosaur Landmark
Haddonfield, NJ and Philadelphia, PA
Like every kid, I had a major thing for dinosaurs. I very clearly remember being 8 or 9 years old at the Academy of Natural Sciences in Philadelphia, wandering among the mounted dinosaur skeletons and being in total awe.
Who wouldn’t be in awe? That kid sure is.
I always stopped in front of the Hadrosaurus display, and I was always blown away by how it was found in Haddonfield. I mean, that was only two towns over from me, not really where you’d expect a dinosaur to be found…
