A large group of people gathered in the cold under cloudy skies around 10 a.m. Friday to hear an announcement nearly a generation in the making: the city of Camden and Central Carolina Technical College (CCTC) -- in collaboration with Kershaw County, Historic Camden Revolutionary War Site, the state of South Carolina, S.C. Department of Parks, Recreation and Tourism (SCPRT), and U.S. National Park Service -- will build a new Camden-Kershaw County Visitors Center on property deeded to the city by Historic Camden in September 2018.
