Historic Camden celebrates its own 40 years of history
Placeholder Image
More than 40 years ago, a few dozen acres of vacant land near downtown Camden looked like nothing more than just an open field. But when longtime Camden philanthropist Richard Lloyd looked at it, he saw nearly 200 years of untouched American history buried beneath the ground. Eager to share that history with the rest of the county, Lloyd went on to create the Camden District Heritage Foundation, a non-profit organization whose purpose was to preserve, restore, research and interpret properties in Camden.
