About Us:

The Camden Archives and Museum is funded by the City of Camden and is a department of the City. It is responsible for collecting, preserving and making accessible items of importance to the history of the area. The artifacts in the museum represent a diverse collection of items relating to cultural heritage.

The Archives and Museum is recognized throughout South Carolina and the Southeast as having one of the best research libraries pertaining to genealogical research. It houses a diverse collection of books, microfilm, maps, files, periodicals and general reference materials which will aid visitors in their research for ancestry. We set forth a policy of primarily collecting material which pertains to the north-central section of South Carolina formerly recognized as the old Camden District. This area today encompasses several counties including Clarendon, Sumter, Lee, Kershaw, Lancaster, York, Chester, Fairfield and northern Richland County.

They have removed most all the South Carolina history in favor of the gun collection.

Fantastic Gun Collection and interesting displays on local history. Fun place to do research on family history, too.
