I was there to visit in 2004, and the town looked like Berlin after the Nazis lost the war in 1945.The banks were empty, many of the other shops were vacant, or were junk shops. The place was really sad. I left 27 years ago, and even the house I grew up in was turned into an industrial facility. Many friends from there have died from unusual forms of cancer, and environmental related causes.I am happy I lived there before 1978, and hope that others do not die from the lampari effects in their futures, including myself. This writing is not to offend, it is the truth!

Sorry to hear the passing of several formal Pitmanites from the 50's and 60's as classmates.It was a very energetic era back then, and Pitman was a lovely place to be. None of us knew or rathered believed in the terminal effects of pcb's and other highly toxic compounds that abound this Gloucester County region.May some of us live a long and healthy life.....ok

Certainly look forward to the reunion of 2010 for PHS, as I have been to so many,...none!
I really look forward to seeing everyone in my Class of 1970. 40 years is quite some time.

Born and raised just outside of Pitman, near as I can tell just north of the four lane. We moved to the Left Coast in 1957 I have many fond memories of Pitman including the multi colored pools of chemicals that dotted the woods around town. That aside I miss the stockcar raises, swiming in Alcion Lake, & 4th of July.

The landfill was closed long ago. Alcyon Lake has been cleaned up although there's no swimming allowed. The racetrack is also long gone and has been replaced with numerous sports fields. The old movie theatre was vacant for years but several years ago was refurbished and now has live concerts and plays. The old Hotel Pitman was a dump for many years and was torn down several years ago. That lot is now vacant. All in all Pitman is still a rather nice little town.
