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!

If you haven’t already done so, please take a minute to renew your Historical Society of Haddonfield membership today. You can send in your check or click on the PayPal link in the right margin to renew today.

(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).

Thank you in advance for your continued support!

Historical Society Awarded General Operating Support Grant

April 5, 2017 Uncategorized Comments Off on Historical Society Awarded General Operating Support Grant

Local students pose after a class visit to Greenfield Hall.

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.
