Tavistock is a borough in Camden County, New Jersey, United States. As of the 2000 Census, the population was 24, making it the third smallest municipality by population in New Jersey, with just six more residents than the 18 residing in Teterboro, in Bergen County and four more than the 20 in nearby Pine Valley.[6]

Tavistock was incorporated as a borough by an Act of the New Jersey Legislature on February 16, 1921, from portions of the now-defunct Centre Township.[7]

Tavistock was formed for the purpose of allowing the members of Tavistock Country Club the ability to play golf on Sundays as this was prohibited at the Haddon Country Club which was governed by a local blue law prohibiting sporting activities on Sundays.[8] Tavistock's secession from Haddonfield, New Jersey, the original site of the club, is said to have been driven by the fact that was (and remains) a dry borough, though Tavistock was formed in 1921 during Prohibition when liquor would have been banned.[9][10]
