The Camden Archives and Museum has one of the best genealogical research facilities in South Carolina. We primarily collect material pertaining to the north-central section of South Carolina formerly recognized as the old Camden District. The South Carolina Daughters of the American Revolution Library and the Colonial Dames XVII Century Library are also located at the archives.
Visitors to the museum can view both permanent and rotating exhibits on Kershaw County and the City of Camden's rich history. Artifacts on display are as diverse as Native American items, artifacts from the 1780 Battle of Camden, and Ruffian's halter. Our changing exhibit gallery presents a fresh look at Camden's history.
