The Historical Society of Haddonfield has been awarded a second year of 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 $2,750 grant award will bolster the Historical Society’s work to preserve, study and share the history of Haddonfield and its environs.

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.

In the case of inclement weather, the Historical Society of Haddonfield follows the schedule of the Haddonfield School District *and* the School District of Philadelphia. If either of those districts close, delay opening, or dismiss early, the Society will close or delay its public hours as appropriate. We want to be sure that staff and volunteers traveling from further distances can get home safely.
