Belcoville was the company town for Bethlehem Loading Company located in Estell Manor, NJ.  Built in less than six months, the village could house 400 families & 3,000 single employees.  Belcoville included a town hall, school, bank, bowling alley & retail stores. 

Today, the site is part of an Atlantic County Park where many concrete ruins & rail beds remain.
