Pursgloves in Gloucester City, New Jersey

Originally settled as Fort Nassau on the Delaware River, this was a 17th century Dutch trading post for beaver pelts.  The trading post was moved in 1651 to the opposite bank of the river and called Fort Casimir.  Its proximity to the Port of Philadelphia resulted in a local expansion of population and in 1868 the city was incorporated and is now in Camden County, New Jersey
