The Camden Archives and Museum is currently showing a new exhibit showcasing the history of Campbell Street: “The Campbell Street Story: An African American Heritage Tour.” The story of Campbell Street is the story of Camden’s African-American community. It is a rich and layered story and in fact one cannot truly know and understand the story of Camden without knowing the history of this area and community, Camden Archives and Museum Director Katherine Richardson said.
