Security may be increased at Camden Archives

Security isn't a problem currently at the Camden Archives and Museum, but may need to be enhanced depending on future exhibits. That's the assessment made by Camden Police Department (CPD) Capt. Mike Stone to CPD Chief Joe Floyd in a Dec. 20, 2012, memorandum attached to Tuesday's Camden City Council work session agenda.

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.

Our place in history

Midlands residents watching Steven Spielberg's latest film, Lincoln, may not know that there is a Camden connection to the 16th President of the United States. The fact that his brother-in-law, Dr. George Rogers Clark Todd, is buried in Camden's Quaker Cemetery is likely nothing new to long-time residents, however.
