The Historical Society of Haddonfield has been awarded $4,450 in general operating support from the Camden County Cultural and Heritage Commission at Camden County College. The Commission is the officially designated county history agency of the New Jersey Historical Commission.

The new grant award will strengthen the Historical Society’s work to preserve, study and share the history of Haddonfield and its environs. The Society was one of two institutions in the county to receive funding.

“We are so grateful to the Commission for this support,” said Carol W. Smith, President of the Historical Society. “Awards like this one make an immediate difference in our efforts to engage and educate the public through public programs, publications, and partnerships with local schools.”

The Camden County Cultural and Heritage Commission was founded in 1972, and recognizes the role of arts and local history in making our communities dynamic places to live and work.

Just some of the collections that will benefit from the new grant

The Historical Society of Haddonfield has been awarded a $1,836 matching grant from the Conservation Center for Art and Historic Artifacts (CCAHA) for collections care.

The award is funded with the generous support of the William Penn Foundation, and will allow the Historical Society to purchase computer hardware and software, a dehumidifier, UV light filters, and supplies for monitoring insects, labeling artifacts, rehousing archival collections, and responding to emergencies.

The Historical Society qualified for the grant by participating in CCAHA’s Philadelphia Stewardship Program. Over the last two years, the Historical Society has been awarded $15,758 in CCAHA services and matching grants through the program, which aims to help nonprofit collecting institutions achieve their preservation and conservation goals.

Remember the Historical Society in Your Year-End Giving

One of our student tours in April 2016

As 2016 comes to a close, please consider making a special year-end gift to the Historical Society of Haddonfield.

Thanks to your past support, the past year has been an exciting time around here.

We’ve expanded our work with local students and educators, created new tours for second graders, published a book about Samuel Nicholson Rhoads co-authored by Haddonfield Middle School students, and continue to mentor high school students working with primary sources in our Archives Center.

And we continue to reach new audiences with our public programs, our book club, and our website. But we also have important responsibilities as the stewards of historic Greenfield Hall and the Samuel Mickle House, the oldest frame structure in Camden County.

Would you consider making a special gift to help us complete some important maintenance and restoration work in Greenfield Hall this year? Your donation will help us tackle projects from the roof to the basement, helping to ensure that Greenfield Hall is here for generations to come. We are a 501(c)(3) organization, so your gift will be tax deductible to the full extent of the law.

You can donate today by clicking on the yellow “donate” button in the right column of this page, or by mailing a check to Historical Society of Haddonfield, 343 Kings Highway East, Haddonfield, NJ 08033.

Thank you in advance, and happy new year!
