Located on the second floor of the Camden Public Library, the Camden Museum opened in 1986. It began as a Community Improvement Project for the Camden Literary Club and has grown to four rooms of memorabilia, which tell the history of the town, its school, and its businesses. The curtain from the Camden Opera House, turn-of-the century opera clothes, a land grant signed by President Martin Van Buren, and school trophies and pictures dating back to the first graduating class of 1899 provide a glimpse of life over the years in this small town. The building housing the library and museum is also a treasure. Designated as a National Historic Landmark, it has been lovingly restored by the town’s citizens. The stately brick building represents Italianate architecture and was built in 1869.
