    WHAT'S HAPPENING



    Historic Camden is unique in that it is truly a microcosm of the 2nd half of the turbulent 18th century like no other town in the southern colonials. It’s people free and enslaved saw, felt, and at times paid dearly for the unimaginable change brought by global colonization, and the Agricultural, Industrial and American Revolutions.
