2022 Grace Church calendar celebrates Camden’s Hotel Era
Grace Calendar 2022
The Kirkwood Hotel, before it was razed in 1944, on West Greene Street, on the cover of this year’s calendar.
Beginning in the early 1880s, Camden with her mild winters and hospitable southern charm attracted wealthy industrialists, financiers and equestrians seeking relief from the blistery northern winters. They came, initially by rail, to enjoy the “dry, pure air … laden with tonic odors” and recreational pastimes such as golf, hunting and equine sports.
