Is There a Real Haddonfield, Illinois?

Haddonfield, Illinois is a fictional town that was used as the setting for the cult classic film “Halloween.” The film, which debuted in 1978 and starred Jamie Lee Curtis, was set in the idyllic Midwestern surroundings but was actually shot in Hollywood and South Pasadena, California. There is, however, a real city called Haddonfield in New Jersey.

Haddonfield, New Jersey is located in Camden County and is a relatively small town. Haddonfield got its start in 1682 and prides itself on maintaining “old-world hospitality” just minutes from major highways that take residents and visitors into the nearby states of New York, Delaware and Pennsylvania.
