Recently, the Camden Historic Landmarks Commission (CHLC) and the city of Camden certified 1707 Broad St. as an historic landmark. Originally known as the McKain House, John McKain -- a veteran of the War of 1812 and owner of a stagecoach line between Raleigh, N.C., and Augusta, Ga. -- erected the residence in 1850. The home’s construction used a popular two-over-four room design, fabricated with new as well as recycled materials, including old windows, doors and mantles from the late 1700s and early 1800s.
