Historic Camden to host McCaas Tavern Bare Walls Party
McCaaHouseB
The John McCaa House, above, at Historic Camden Revolutionary War Site will soon enter phase one of its restoration process. The Bare Walls Party will be held there Monday from 5:30-9:30 p.m.
The December 29, 1794, entry James Kershaw, the eldest son of Joseph Kershaw, wrote in his 1791-1814 diary states: "Dance at McCaa’s per subscription." One can only assume McCaa’s proprietor, John McCaa, offered the locals and wayfarers to Camden such evenings of gaiety frequently, as many taverns did. Unfortunately, little is known about the establishment except its location near the northwest corner of Bull and Market Streets.
