‘Portrait of Camden’ exhibit at Camden Archives and Museum

Epsy Peebles smoothed her straight brown hair back from her face and into a bun at the nape of her neck. The reflection in the mirror showed her plain round face. Her skin was still smooth as a schoolgirl's. Her lips were still full and young looking. Her brown eyes searched her reflection carefully. She was getting ready to have her photograph portrait made with Daniel -- for the first time ever. The appointment this afternoon was a milestone for them. They had finally saved up enough money from the farm income to "splurge" on a permanent image of themselves ...

Two trees to be replaced at Town Green

Despite our best efforts at proper planting and maintenance, two of the live oaks at the Town Green will be replaced in the coming days/week. The live oaks have been in decline for some time due to a variety of reasons but it basically boils down to transplant shock. This shock is due to a large percentage (up to 90 percent) of the trees' root system remaining at the nursery when the tree is dug. Transplant shock occurs to all field-grown trees which are dug from a nursery and planted in a new site.
