Camden City Council approved second reading and final approval of an ordinance granting six or more properties as historic designations, as recommended by the Camden Historic Landmarks Commission.

A home on Sarsfield Avenue was named a historic site, while five properties -- on Lakeview Avenue, Chesnut Street, Hobkirk Court, Mill Street and Sarsfield Avenue -- were classified as historic district properties. 

Camden Historic Landmarks Commission Chairwoman Sarah Davis was on hand to accept the certificates naming the historic properties.

During Tuesday’s meeting, Mayor Mary Y. Clark displayed a plaque given to council on behalf of the Wateree-Kendall Club in recognition of the city’s restoration efforts to Wateree-Kendall Clubhouse in the Kendall Mill Village. City Building Official John Burns and the landmarks commission also received plaques Saturday.
