View Collections View Catalog



The Camden Archives and Museum collects and makes available to the public items of historical interest related to Camden and the surrounding area once known as Kershaw District. As a department of the City of Camden, it is the official repository for the City’s non-current, permanent municipal records. The Archives contains a diverse collection of books, microfilm, maps, files, periodicals and general reference materials available for researchers. The Museum displays permanent and rotating exhibits on the rich history of Kershaw County and the City of Camden. Artifacts on display are as diverse as Native American items, china from Camden’s great hotels, and Ruffian’s halter. Our changing exhibit gallery presents a fresh look at Camden’s history.
