Historic Camden Revolutionary War Site

Spend a few peaceful hours where the British spent a rough year. After the siege of Charleston in May 1780, Lord Charles Cornwallis and 2,500 British soldiers marched to Camden and set up their main Backcountry supply post. For the next 11 months the town suffered under British military rule. Guided and self-guided tours are available and focus on Camden's Colonial and Revolutionary eras. The 106-acre outdoor museum complex includes the 18th-century town site, 16-minute orientation film, the furnished restored 1785 Craven House, restored John McCaa House aka McCaa's Tavern, circa 1794 and interpreted as an 18th century tavern, two restored log cabins with exhibits, partial reconstruction of British military fortifications and the reconstructed and furnished Joseph Kershaw House, headquarters for Lord Cornwallis. Some buildings handicap accessible. Historic Camden is an affiliated area of the National Park Service.
