It was previously Camp Pedricktown an Air Defense Base Construction under the Philadelphia District of the Army Corps of Engineers transferred to the New York District on July 1, 1960. The station had a Missile Master installation with an Army Air Defense Command Post, and associated search, height finder, and identification friend or foe radars. The station's radars were subsequently replaced with radars at Gibbsboro Air Force Station 15 mi (24 km) away. The obsolete Martin AN/FSG-1 Antiaircraft Defense System,a 1957-vintage vacuum tube computer, was removed after command of the defense area was transferred to the command post at Highlands Air Force Station near New York City. The Highlands AFS command post controlled the combined New York-Philadelphia Defense Area.
The air defense station, with an intact bunker was designated an historic site in 1998 by the Salem Historic Preservation Office.
