Tickets On Sale Now for June 2 Colonial Haddonfield Walking Tour

May 7, 2018 Events Comments Off on Tickets On Sale Now for June 2 Colonial Haddonfield Walking Tour

The Historical Society is pleased to announce tickets are on sale now for a new Colonial Haddonfield walking tour to be held Saturday June 2 from 10 am to 12 noon — just before the Indian King’s annual “Skirmish on the Highway.”

Tickets are only $25 per person, and space is limited to no more than 40 participants (in two groups of 20). We expect this one to sell out, so don’t wait!

The walking tour will be led by Joe Haro, who has for many years led architectural walking tours in Philadelphia and Haddonfield, and Co-Borough Historian Kathy Tassini. The tour will depart from Greenfield Hall, 343 Kings Highway East, Haddonfield, and continue to Haddon Avenue and back.

Participants will also have a chance to view the inside of the Guard House / Timothy Matlack house on Kings Highway, opposite the Indian King Tavern. Light refreshments will be available in the garden at Greenfield Hall after the tour.

All proceeds to benefit the Historical Society. Contact the office at 856-429-7375 or by email at info@haddonfieldhistory.org to get your tickets today.

May 2, 2018 Events, New Archives Center Comments Off on Garage Sale To Be Held On Saturday May 5

 

The Historical Society is holding a garage sale on Saturday May 5 between 9 am and 1 pm.

This truly is a GARAGE sale: we are emptying out the detached garage behind Greenfield Hall in anticipation of building our new Archives Center. The new building will replace the garage, so we need to clear it out.

Among the items available for sale on Saturday:

* assorted Christmas ribbons & decorations
* flower vases & assorted floral arranging supplies
* large folding tables, side tables, and chairs
* metal cabinets, file cabinets, and shelving units
* party-size open tubs
* old wooden doors
* assorted lumber & trim pieces
* light fixtures

Plus many non-collection items from the closets of Greenfield Hall, including antique walking canes, eyeglasses, china and dishware, picture frames, and so much more!

May Meeting to Focus on Haddonfield Picture Postcards

April 25, 2018 Events Comments Off on May Meeting to Focus on Haddonfield Picture Postcards

The Society’s next general membership meeting on Wednesday May 23 will feature a presentation by Haddonfield resident Deborah Garwood, “Haddonfield Picture Postcards: Commerce, Communication and Community at the Turn of the Twentieth Century.”

Garwood will discuss the history of postcards and how legal changes fueled their explosive popularity in the early twentieth century. She will also be sharing postcards from her own collection and discussing what they have to tell us about our past. Her collection includes postcards of the Elizabeth Haddon House, the Indian King Tavern, and the Methodist parsonage formerly located on Kings Highway. One set of cards help document Haddonfield’s transition from farm center to suburban community, with messages about the Grange (an agricultural organization) and an agricultural course at Rutgers.

We hope you’ll be able to join us on Wednesday May 23 at 7:30 pm at Greenfield Hall, 343 Kings Highway East, Haddonfield. Members are free, with a suggested donation of $5 for nonmembers.

April 3, 2018 Events Comments Off on May 6 “First Sunday” to Include Pop-up Display About Children’s Lives in Haddonfield and Surrounding Areas

The Historical Society will create another new pop-up display for the next “First Sunday.” This latest display, “When I Was Your Age: Kids in Haddonfield Through the Years,” will be on view on Sunday May 6 from 1-3 pm on the first floor of Greenfield Hall, 343 Kings Highway East, Haddonfield. Admission is free, but donations are welcome.

As with our previous pop-up displays, we’ll be pulling out a selection of items from our archival and museum collections that help illustrate the theme. We also offer tours of Greenfield Hall on First Sundays, and the Archives Center will be open for researchers next door in the Mickle House.

The pop-up display will continue through most of May and be available for viewing during Greenfield Hall’s public hours (Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 1-4 pm) or by special appointment at another time.
