Harleigh Cemetery is the finest example of a picturesque Victorian cemetery in South Jersey featuring curving roadways, hillocks, groves of trees, and tombs set into hillsides. Organized in 1885, it is the final resting place of two well-known poets, Walt Whitman and the 20th century Haiku poet Nick Virgilio, as well as many prominent Camden County government officials and civic leaders. A portion of the cemetery is now used as the Camden County Veterans' Cemetery.
