Who’s Buried in the Street in Northfield?
Did you know that someone is buried in the middle of a road in Atlantic County?
Nope. It's not Jimmy Hoffa.
It's Jeremiah Leeds, the first year `round resident of Absecon Island, home of Atlantic City.
According to Roadside America, Leeds, in 1783, "built a cabin on the spot now occupied by the Atlantic City Bus Terminal." When he died, in 1838 he was buried on a small piece of land that now sits in the middle of Oxford Circle, just off Mill Road in Northfield.
