The Historical Society of Haddonfield plans to build a new Archives Center on the site of an existing garage on the Society’s property at 343 Kings Highway East. The new two-story building was designed by Haddonfield resident Eduardo Guzman of DCM Architecture and Engineering, and reinterprets an earlier barn that had stood on the site.
The new building will provide much-needed space for the Society’s archival holdings, which include correspondence, photographs, diaries, scrapbooks, maps, pamphlets, ephemera, privately published books, and more. The Archives Center is currently housed in the eighteenth-century Samuel Mickle House, the oldest frame structure in Camden County. Approximately half of the 725 linear feet of collection materials is now stored off-site.
