Broadway Trust Company

About Broadway Trust Company:

The Broadway Trust Company building, also known as Broadway Merchants Trust, was built prior to World War I and was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1990. The architect was Phillip Merz of Rochester, New York, and construction was completed by the J. Henry Miller Co. of Baltimore, Maryland, who also built the building which would become the Bureau of Engraving and Printing’s third home in Washington DC, and the Bank of America Building in Baltimore, MD. The Broadway Trust Company was led by John J. Burleigh, one of the leading businessmen in South Jersey from the 1870s through World War I. William J. Cooper, who owned a business at 215-221 Kaighn Avenue selling doors, windows and moldings, served as one vice president; the other was Anthony Kobus, who was in the shoe business at South 4th and Spruce Streets. Adam Schlorer, the owner of a large meat business at South 8th & Chestnut Streets, was also one of the original organizers.
