Quaker Cemetery and rural garden cemeteries

A group of Irish Quakers were the earliest group of colonists to settle Camden, arriving here via the Wateree River in 1751. In 1759, Quaker Samuel Wyly gave the Friends, as the Quakers were called, 4 acres of land in the southwest corner of the town limits to be used as a burying ground. The burying ground tract is noted on the 1832 plat by tract "D."

Replace recreation office

As a long-time citizen of Kershaw County, I am embarrassed by the condition of our recreation department office. The present condition is one of stained and sagging overhead tiles in the ceiling, years of built-up grime, carpet pieces (replaced due to water damage) which overlap causing a tripping problem, etc. I would not be surprised if there is not also a mold problem. I have spoken to some people who state they do not attend the recreation center because it agitates their breathing. I would question whether or not all the members of county council have visited this center in ...
