Camden City, NJ—Saint Joseph’s History Society of South Camden invites the public to join us for a tour of St. Joseph’s Polish Church on October 9, 2022, from 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm at 1010 Liberty Street, Camden, NJ 08104. The event will feature a presentation of the history of the Polish community of South Camden.
The church was designed by ecclesiastical architect George I. Lovatt, Sr. in the early part of the 20th century. Its baroque style is unique among Roman Catholic churches in the Diocese of Camden. The marble altar and stunning stained-glass windows help to create a truly majestic structure.
Also included in the tour are visits to the szopka (Polish mechanical nativity) and the history room, located in the parish hall, which was the original 1895 church building. For reservations and information, please email [email protected].
This event is one of more than seventy activities taking place during Camden County History Month from October 1 to October 31, 2022, when over thirty participating historic sites and history organizations throughout Camden County will be open with special exhibits, reenactments, and guided tours for adults and children.
