Parking Squeeze Near Historical Society

September 8, 2017 Uncategorized Comments Off on Parking Squeeze Near Historical Society

If you’re planning to visit the Historical Society during business hours, please be aware that street parking during the day is currently VERY limited due to construction at neighboring Haddonfield Memorial High School. If you can carpool or walk to the Society, please do.

Kings Highway East and other surrounding streets will require parking permits until 3 pm starting Monday Sept. 11, 2017 through the end of January 2018, to allow space for teachers and staff to park on the street using temporary permits. Students will therefore be taking up whatever other street parking can be found beyond the perimeter of the permit-parking zone. You can see a map of the full permit zone here.

If you need to drive to the Society, you may be lucky enough to find a space right in front of Greenfield Hall, either in the designated three-hour parking spaces or in the handicapped space. We also offer several off-street parking spaces behind the Mickle House on Kings Lane:
– one space on the far side of the Society’s detached garage;
– two spaces on the apron of our detached garage; and
– three spaces across from our detached garage.

You can also search for public parking on Kings Highway East starting west of Evergreen Ave., and check the public parking lot behind Borough Hall (two blocks away).

Please give us a call if you’re having trouble finding a space and we will do our best to offer some assistance.

In observance of the Fourth of July, the Historical Society will be closed Saturday July 1 through Tuesday July 4. We will reopen on Wednesday July 5. Since we’ll be missing our usual “First Sunday” hours in July, please feel free to call or email the office or the Archives Center to arrange an appointment for another time to visit.

Fortunately, our beautiful gardens are always open!

(And if you have already renewed, thank you so much!)

As always, your membership has enabled us to accomplish so much this year. Thanks to your support, we have been able to continue our work with local students and educators, including tours for both second- and third-graders at local schools. We also mentored more than 80 students from Haddonfield Memorial High School working with primary source materials in our Archives Center.

We completed repairs and improvements to the Samuel Mickle House, the oldest frame structure in Camden County. We also invested in new tools for preserving our museum collections, and put more objects on display in Greenfield Hall. And we continue to reach out to new audiences with our public programs, which include free-to-members lectures, and our book club.

We have even bigger plans for next year and need your continued support.

Please consider renewing at $35, $55, or more today. You can mail in a check, or donate via PayPal (just note in the “special instructions” that this is for your membership).
