Oliver Station: Honoring Inspirational New Jersey Leaders

The name Oliver Station pays homage to the Reverend Thomas Clement Oliver (1818 -1900), a conductor on the Underground Railroad who briefly lived in Camden. He once presided over the Macedonia African Methodist Episcopal Church, Camden’s oldest African American institution and a refuge for freedom seekers, according to the State of New Jersey.

To read more about the Reverend Oliver’s legacy, consult these online resources from Rowan University, and Salem County’s 7 Steps to Freedom project.

The name Oliver Station acquired a second meaning in August 2023, following the death of New Jersey Lieutenant Governor Sheila Y. Oliver. Elected in 2017 alongside Governor Phil Murphy, she previously served in the N.J. General Assembly for more than 15 years.

Lieutenant Governor Oliver recognized the link between safe housing and sustainable health, and she advocated for those who encounter barriers to achieving both. We are grateful for the opportunity to pay tribute to her – and the Reverend Thomas Clement Oliver – with this beautiful addition to Camden’s Whitman Park neighborhood.
Victor Carstarphen, Mayor of the City of Camden.


Oliver Station is On the Rise in Camden

The Michaels Organization and Virtua Health are collaborating to create a housing and health care community in the Whitman Park neighborhood of Camden. The vibrant campus – called Oliver Station – will integrate beautiful, affordable senior housing with a Virtua medical practice. The campus is less than a half-mile from Virtua Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital, the health system’s hub for specialized care, including advanced cardiovascular and organ transplantation services.
