Camden County Celebrates Three Big History Events

Camden County has celebrated three big history events during this past month. The Camden County History Alliance was honored with an award for our Heritage Tourism Plan on June 5th. On June 8th, the first South Jersey History Fair was held on the grounds of the Gabreil Daveis Tavern Museum House. Then on June 17th, the Camden County Historical Society unveiled a historical marker acknowledging the sale of enslaved Africans at ferry terminals in Camden during the 1700s. To learn more about these historic occasions, along with upcoming history events throughout Camden County during the coming month, please see below.
