WHO WE ARE
Historic Camden’s mission is to protect, educate and celebrate Camden’s extraordinary Colonial and American Revolutionary War history. We work to uphold our mission in a number of ways. Offering visitors the opportunity to engage in history through demonstrations like blacksmithing or brickmaking, hearing our farm manager discuss 18th century agriculture, or touring our historic homes, helps to protect and educate for those in the generations to come. These are only a few of the many ways in which we work to achieve our mission.
At Historic Camden we are proud to serve as stewards of two historic sites, the land that was Colonial Camden and the hallowed ground where the Battle of Camden was fought.
Living History & Historic Trades
At our forge, brickyard, pottery, weavery and farm, we offer a host of opportunities for visitors to see historic trades in action.
At our very core from day one over 50-years ago we have been involved in historic and environmental preservation. From the restoration of historic buildings to our work at the Battlefield Long Leaf Pine Preserve.
At Historic Camden we offer learning opportunities that include not just colonial history but, through our amazing colonial trade program, we are also educational facilitators. Tap here for SCHOOL TOURS.
The Historic Camden Foundation is not state or federally funded so we rely on individual donations. Even a small donation truly helps. So please send a gift and make a difference!
