What is the Historic Camden Foundation?
Historic Camden Foundation is a 501(c)3 private nonprofit dedicated to the celebration and preservation of Camden’s Colonial and American Revolutionary War history. It is our mission to maintain these historic lands and educate the public on their significance to our culture and the story of our nation. Both the Broad Street campus and Camden Battlefield are featured on the National Register of Historic Places, and Historic Camden is a National Park Service affiliate site.
We are committed to protecting and preserving Camden’s history, including the town’s legacy and monuments, as well as the 450-acres of core battlefields under the protection of the Historic Camden Foundation. Our 107 acres sit atop the original 18th-century property of the city’s founder, Joseph Kershaw.
Education is integral to all that we do at Historic Camden Foundation. We offer educational experiences to visitors of all ages, including on-site environmental education courses, revolutionary experiences for students, tours of our battle sites and more.
Through guided tours, education experiences and a litany of events hosted on the grounds of our sprawling outdoor museum, the Historic Camden Foundation celebrates the significant history of these lands and our dear town by bringing the stories of the past to the people of the present!
