As South Carolina’s oldest inland city, Camden has a proud historical heritage and, fortunately, a populace that embraces it and promotes it. The latest chapter in the historical tableau was unveiled yesterday afternoon when statues of Joseph Kershaw, one of the founders of the town, and King Hagler a Native American leader who assisted the people of this area during the French and Indian War, were unveiled on the Town Green. The bronzes were donated by Johnny Hagins Jr., who grew up here and is now a prominent attorney in Greenville, to honor his father, who managed the Belk store in Camden for years and was a business and community leader.
