Haddonfield is a borough located in Camden County, New Jersey. As of the 2010 United States Census, the borough had a total population of 11,593.

Haddonfield was incorporated by an Act of the New Jersey Legislature on April 6, 1875, within portions of Haddon Township, based on the results of a referendum held that same day. The borough became fully separated from Haddon Township as an independent municipality in 1894.

In 1971, Haddonfield became the second municipality in New Jersey (after Cape May) to establish a historic preservation district. In keeping with the historic appearance of the borough, some candidates for commissioner distribute colored ribbons to their supporters instead of yard signs.

The New Jersey General Assembly met and declared New Jersey a free and independent state at Haddonfield's Indian King Tavern in the winter of 1777. However, since 1873, Haddonfield has been a dry town where alcohol cannot be sold.
